Regular event – Bipolar Support Group, Darlington


Bipolar UK support groups cover the length and breadth of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Groups are free to attend and are open to all individuals affected by bipolar including those with a diagnosis, those pre-diagnosis, their family members, friends and carers.

You don’t need a referral and you don’t have to let us know you’re coming – just turn up!

Our Support Groups are intended for people aged 18 and above. If you are aged between 16 and 18 you can attend a Support Group if you are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Bipolar support groups offer:
* Regular (usually monthly) meetings
* Friendly, confidential and accepting environment
* Peer support through group discussion
* Useful information
* Social activities
* Guidance on managing mood swings

“Although I have never attended a group meeting, my husband does and it makes all the difference to our lives”

At a support group you can:
* Join in and gain more confidence
* Get to know yourself better
* Make new friends
* Learn to manage mood swings
* Get practical advice

If you are feeling isolated or need help for yourself or for someone else, then come and be part of a Bipolar UK support group.

Regular event – Darlington Sunday Peoples’ Market

Darlington Sunday People’s Market first event was held in August 2012. We have been crowned Britian’s Favourite Market by ‘National Association of British Market Authorities’ competition 2013 and we were runners up in 2014.

We operate on the first Sunday of each month 11am-4pm and have between 15-20 traders.

Our traders specialise in home made, hand crafted, vintage, unique quality goods, that are not usually found on a general market, making us a special shopping experience.

We attract traders and shoppers from all over the North of England and have had several traders take up retail units and turn hobbies into careers. If you wish to join us in trading, entertaining, busking or any other capacity then please email me at
