• Life Skills Centre

    Making a difference supports people who suffer mental distress. We encourage involvement in many different activities to encourage and develop confidence and self worth, purpose and hope. The life skills centre on Stamford street consists of 4 work rooms where members participate in a range of creative and practical activities. Alongside the workrooms is a café in which those who have gained their food hygiene certificate gain barista skills, customer carer and in our training kitchen learn baking skills, making cakes to sell in the café. In Droylsden we have an allotment with 10 beds in which we grow vegetables and fruit to cook in skills centre for members. We have a green house in our atrium a the rear of our building in which we grow plants to sell. One member makes bedding boxes or other wooden items to sell. The members create items in our sewing room, cards, jewelry and many crafts to sell, this pays for their attendance, whilst also build confidence once sold. Please get in touch for more information and referral process.

    Organisation Profile:

    MADT believes people need to be seen and treated as much more than a psychiatric label or a social work client if they are to have a real chance of long-term recovery and independence.

    Our Mission is to encourage and build self esteem, self worth and confidence within a safe and supportive environment, for adults who have experienced or are recovering from long term mental health problems.
