QE2 Activity Centre needs you!

QE2 Activity Centre needs you!


QE2 Activity Centre is a registered charity (CIO 1165893) providing activity opportunities for people with additional needs. The Centre was set up to commemorate HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee; in fact our original name was Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Activities Centre.


Situated in the River Hamble Country Park at Hedge End we provide a service for people from all over Hampshire. Since 1978 we have worked with thousands of people with additional needs – and their families and carers – helping people to access adventure activities like canoeing, motor boating, zipwire, orienteering, bushcraft, archery, rifles, climbing walls, and indoor sports & games. A decade ago we started our day service for adults with learning disabilities. Here we promote work and independent living skills, through a range of practical activities.

Management Committee and Friends of QE2

The Centre has a staff of around a dozen and is overseen by a Management Committee. The Committee is drawn from people with an interest in the work of the Centre and we are looking to expand and strengthen it.  If you are interested in helping steer the QE2 Activity Centre, and feel you have skills to offer, we would be pleased to hear from you. We meet every three months at the Centre, and there are other opportunities to be involved.


If being on a committee is not for you, but you want to be involved in the Centre in a practical way, you could join Friends of QE2.  This is a that supports the Centre, either by helping with fundraising, organising and running events, or involvement in other aspects of work at the Centre.
