Hartlepool Council is seeking the views of older people to help understand what is important to them and how future services should be shaped in the town.

It's holding a consultation event - the second in a series - which takes place on Monday 14th March at the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) in Brierton Lane from 2pm to 4pm.

The first event, held in October, discussed what support older people need in order to stay independent in their own homes, support available for people with dementia and their families and what can be done to stop older people feeling isolated.  The feedback from that event will be reported to the Council's Adult Services Policy Committee on Monday 7th March.

The consultation event on 14th March will provide the opportunity to discuss community safety, transport options and will also look at how older people can introduce technology into their lives.

Councillor Carl Richardson, Chair of the Council's Adult Services Policy Committee, said: "The information gathered at these events will help to determine topics for future public engagement events as well as influencing how services are developed and provided in the future.

"It's so important to seek the views of residents who receive our services or who may require them in the future and I hope that people take the opportunity to come along and let us have their thoughts."
