The Belle Vue Centre offers activities and support for children and young people aged 5 – 19 years. The service is both open access (welcoming children from different areas in Hartlepool) and also on a referral basis. Referrals are made from Social Care, Schools and any other agencies across the town. The activity sessions hope to engage children and young people in Art, Dance, Drama and Sports as a means of diverting them from antisocial behaviour and getting them focused on positive activities.
