A chance to build peer support within your own community.

The Community Outreach Project is an extension of our Hospice services into the community of Chester-le-Street. We provide a safe space for people to come together, where journeys can be shared, and support networks and interests can be developed.

Support Groups Date and Time (except for bank holidays) Location
Hospice Hub Coffee Morning Every Monday 10am – 11:30am Chester-le-Street Parish Centre, Church Chare, DH3 3QB
Dementia Support Every Tuesday –  1pm-2:30pm Auckland Communal Room, Auckland, Waldridge, DH2 2UA
Bereavement Support Every Wednesday – 1pm – 2:30pm Sacriston Youth Project, Unit E, The Old Co-operative Buildings, Plawsworth Road, Sacriston. DH7 6PD

You can come along to our drop in Hospice Hub Coffee Morning, led by our Community Outreach team. The team provides guidance and can signpost you to community-based support for you and those closest to you whether that be a Carer, family member or friend.

If you are looking for a warm welcoming place to share your thoughts and feelings or to simply listen, then pop along and join us for a cuppa.

At the Hospice we understand that the support guests receive after discharge is just as important.

We are developing social and educational groups to support people living with Dementia, Carer support and Bereavement all within the local area of Chester-le-Street.
