The Drop In supports people who experience mental health problems or have emotional difficulties or who are socially isolated for whatever reason. This might be due to divorce or bereavement.

Whatever the reason for coming, all members receive a warm, very friendly welcome.  And help is on hand if you are experiencing a difficult period.

It’s a safe, familiar place where people come for individual support, social opportunities and activities.

There are two regular evening sessions a week – on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a monthly Sunday “bagel brunch” held at The Fed’s our Purple Room Community Centre  in Eventhall House, Heathlands Village. These are run by our sessional staff and volunteers.

You can come along and meet up for a chat and a bite to eat and join in activities such as pool or board-games.


The Drop In has a great annual programme of activities including parties and outings such as to theatre trips or meals out.

There are also well-being sessions which include massage and laughter therapy.

Consulting members

We make sure that we provide what members want by consulting with them about the type of activities they want us to arrange.

Details of our Drop In session times and activities/outings are available to all Drop In members on our mailing list.

Coming for the first time?

If you are thinking of coming but feel a little shy, we can arrange to meet up with you before your first Drop In visit to help you along.

For more information about this service please contact our Referral and Advice Officer, who is available on weekdays from 9am – 2pm on 0161 772 4800 (option 2) or email

In an emergency ask to speak to another member of the Adult Social Work team.
