At Care Network we believe that providing you with information on relevant health and wellbeing services can help you to make informed choices about your life or the lives of anyone you care for, so that you can live the best life.

  • Staying independent
  • Improving wellbeing
  • Home safety and maintenance
  • Meeting new people and having fun
  • Positive mental health and stress management
  • What’s on in the local community
  • Gadgets to stay safe (assistive technology)
  • Health and social care – getting the right help and support
  • Living with a disability
  • Living with long term health conditions
  • Third-party hate crime reporting
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Employment support and work clubs

We will help you navigate the support that is available from statutory services such as Social Services and your GP, as well as what is available from local and national charities, community groups, businesses and other projects and services delivered by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council. 

This one-stop-shop for wellbeing is situated in the heart of Blackburn, we also have a weekly drop in at Darwen Town Hall. The in-person support at these two locations are on hold due to COVID-19, but we are contactable by phone or email. You can also make a referral, or see for yourself a selection of our partner offers during the pandemic at Care Network Hub Online.
