All the team at Care Network are looking forward to returning to normal service, safely, over the coming months and from 12 April staff will return to work from Care Network Hub.

Our return to working from the Hub is a phased transition to ensure the safety of our staff and you, our valued customers. We will continue to answer any enquiries over the phone and by email, however, if you feel you need a face-to-face appointment then please contact us on 01254 507255.

I realise that this is an anxious time for many, so please do continue to get in touch for any assistance. We encourage you to contact us to find out about what's on in Blackburn with Darwen, certainly over the next few months while we ease out of lockdown. 

As always, we are here for you, don't hesitate to get in touch - a problem shared is a problem halved, after all. 

Best regards 
James Hadleigh, Chief Executive
