It’s open Monday to Friday, 10am–4pm (reception 01539 792019), and you can be assured of a warm welcome. At a time when public money is so tight, this is a first-class development.

The project has been funded by Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, as one of a number of similar projects across Cumbria. These include Eden Community Hub, Keswick Health and Wellbeing Hub and Carlisle Centre for the Third Age. The aim of the projects is to ensure that people get the best possible support and are signposted to local services and social activities.

You can find information and get advice from:

Age UK South Lakeland
Alzheimers Society
Sight Advice South Lakes
South Lakeland Carers
South Lakeland MIND
South Lakes Citizens Advice
Cancer Care
Cumbria CVS

There is always someone to talk to and information on a wide range of issues. Services or activities listed here are in a separate part of the centre, and you can just drop in unless noted otherwise.
