About our Compassionate Support Hubs
Rennie Grove’s Compassionate Support Hubs are drop-in sessions, in a local venue or with a local partner. They provide a space where people affected by the diagnosis of a progressive life-limiting illness can drop in to meet others for a drink and a friendly chat. Also, there are trained volunteers or staff members, who can offer information, guidance and signposting to available services.
There is no need to book, so please just come along.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Compassionate Communities team on 01442 890222 or get in touch via our enquiry form
