Gaddum Centre is an independent voluntary sector organisation established in 1833 with a long history of providing quality services in the field of health and social care.
A highly qualified professional staff based in a modern building in the centre of Manchester operate a range of services in the Greater Manchester region. There are also several regional offices that control local services. The 30 full time and 20 part time staff are supported by a Board of Trustees drawn from a diverse number of commercial and other charitable organisations.
Gaddum Centre Advocacy and Advice services can support you as a Manchester resident to understand your choices, know your rights and express your views in order to ensure you are being treated fairly.
Gaddum Befriending Service is a free new service, funded by the JT Blair Charitable Trust, that supports socially isolated people over 60 in Manchester and Salford. The befriending co-ordinator aims to match up individuals with a volunteer befriender who would visit them regularly for social interaction.
We offer practical support and guidance to families, individuals, professionals and anyone concerned about a grieving child. We believe that the right support at the right time can enable a young people and adults to find a way to live with their grief and rebuild a positive future.
We work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. We aim to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers.
Counselling is a type of talking or psychological therapy. It involves talking to a counsellor about the issues you are facing. Counsellors are trained to listen sympathetically and can help you deal with a specific problem or crisis, or difficult feelings in general.
We manage a number of Trust Funds that provide direct support to some of the most disadvantaged people in the community, each fund has been set up to support a particular need. Unfortunately, due to the specific nature of the funds, we are not able to offer financial assistance to everyone who applies.
