Welcome to the Bridgend Centre

“A welcoming, friendly community where all respected, valued and supported”

The Bridgend Centre is a local, independent charity that plays an important role at the heart of the local community in Bollington, Cheshire.  We work to enhance the quality of life for residents and community members by fostering a caring, inclusive and supportive environment. We provide a wide variety of activities, resources and interactions to improve the lives of those living in and visiting our community.

Set up in 1990, the Centre is a place where everyone is welcome.  We offer friendship, company and someone to talk to in an accessible and disability friendly space. We are here to help those who are going through a time of crisis and who need some trustworthy, non-judgmental support to cope and thrive. We particularly support those with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and older people, who without our Centre may feel especially isolated or vulnerable.

We are pleased to announce that our Charity Shop is now open. Of course, in order to protect our staff, volunteers and customers, things are different from previously. We are sorry things won’t be the same as before but hope that this is just for an interim, limited period while we have to maintain social distancing to control the spread of the Coronavirus.

Currently it is only Charity Shop that is open. We are not running any of our usual groups, face-to-face support services, walks or drop-in cafe. We will continue to issue our weekly newsletter ‘Bridging Social Isolation’ and will run several social groups over Zoom. If you do require any advice, support, or someone to talk to, please send us an email at info@bridgendcentre.org.uk, or ring us on 01625 576311 or 01625 813173 and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Our shop opening hours are:

Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm and Saturdays 10am – 1pm

In the shop there are social distancing measures in place to protect you. More information on giving donations and shopping at Bridgend can be found on our ‘Charity Shop’ page.

Thank you for your support and patience during this time, it means the world.
