Queens Cross Network

Queens Cross Network is located near the centre of Dudley, in Wellington Road and provides building based support and community opportunities for people who have a physical disability/sensory impairment.

Queens Cross Network is currently operating Monday to Friday, but with the added benefit of frequent evening and weekend activities and events, as requested by people who use the service. These events can include party evenings, bowling, cinema outings, restaurant and pub visits and other similar enjoyable activities. We offer high quality personalised day opportunities, where people who attend always come first. 

Queens cross is also a great place to meet and enjoy being part of one of our growing number of café groups which take place throughout the month. These include Dudley MS society, Deaf sign cafe,  Access in Dudley, Dudley Carers alliance, Dudley carers forum, Black Country Neurological Alliance, Dudley Deaf Youth Club, ' 4Us Club' for young people with  learning difficulties, Chaos club for young people with disabilities and 'Awesome Abilities' a club for young people with  physical disabilities (both part of 'We love carers').

Queens Cross is home to Dudley carer's hub. A great place for people who care for loved ones to come and seek friendship and support in a relaxing and informal environment.

The centre is also the base for Disability in action. A local user led charity who provide a café and other customer support services through a loyal and dedicated group of volunteers  - Disability in Action's moto is: "Support for disabled people by disabled people". This describes nicely, what Disability in action do!   

Queens Cross network is a Safe Places Venue and a Community Information Point and our excellent toilet facilities are registered with the changing places website.
