About The Centre

The Centre was founded in 1985 to provide a facility for the residents and young people of the Belle Vue Estate.  Through hard work and dedication of a management group made up of local residents, the Centre quickly developed a reputation for delivering quality services to the people of Hartlepool.

In 2001/2 the Hartlepool New Deal for Communities Regeneration Programme and the European Regional Development Fund granted more than £2 million to extend the Centre and create the first class facility that exists today.

Early 2017 Belle Vue Centre will further broaden its provision by working alongside partners providing high-quality early years and parent services for couple relationship support. Providing a base where couples, co-parents and families can meet and obtain information, advice, guidance and practical support when required.
