Drop In Services

Print this page

As a carer 'time for yourself' is never a priority, hence the need for a flexible and friendly service that carers can 'drop-in' to whenever time and energy allows. The carer can share experiences, relax, enjoy a cuppa or have a chat. This is of great comfort and support and relieves the sense of isolation that many people are affected by.

Each of the various Drop In Services Hartlepool Carers has available is catered to a specific subject. Please find below a list of our current services. Anyone is welcome to pop in and ask our friendly staff for advice.
