In light of current circumstances all HIP events are currently postponed. We will keep you updated and are really looking forward to seeing you when we can resume our activities. We have put some useful links for support at this time on the News (blog) page.
We will continue to keep in touch with all members at this time. We are also holding virtual coffee mornings and virtual social events (see Events page).
Look after yourselves and one another at this challenging time.
Friends of HIP

"People keep talking about when things get back to "normal". This is life for us. We are used to being restricted in what we can do and loneliness and isolation is a big part of our lives and will continue to be so long after the coronavirus crisis has passed." HIP Member.
Help us to continue to support our HIP members now, in the future and for as long as they need us.
Thank you and keep safe
