Kim Wootton has joined Qube (Oswestry Community Action) as their new Chief Officer, following the retirement of Laurel Roberts.

Having worked in roles focused on delivering support to individuals and families in financial difficulty, Kim’s empathetic side and passion for making a positive difference really supports Qube’s intention of improving the quality of life in the community and offering services to keep people engaged, supported and less isolated. With a number of years of experience in strategic development and creating partnerships, Kim’s skills will help to drive Qube further forward.

Kim says about joining the team, “I knew as soon as I saw the advertisement for the Chief Officer role it would be perfect for me. Qube has achieved so much under Laurel’s leadership and an extraordinary number of people have been helped, supported and their lives enriched.  Qube now enters a new chapter and to be a part of its future is very exciting.  I’m so proud to have joined Qube and I’m looking forward to continuing its great work and make a positive difference to even more lives.”

Heather Noble, Chair of Trustees at Qube shares her thoughts on Kim taking the reign; ‘We are delighted to have Kim join us for the next exciting phase of work here at Qube. She brings a range of skills, knowledge and experience that will help us to continue delivering great work whilst building our strategy for the future. Kim will be reaching out to third-party organisations and members over the coming weeks and months to reconnect with agencies who are able to support us in our work and to experience first-hand the difference we are making in our community.’
