Welcome to the Bridgend Centre

COVID-19 Update

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided not to re-open the Bridgend charity shop or services after all the building work that has been carried out. We will be closed for an indefinite period.

As the whole ethos of our Centre is to reduce social isolation we just couldn’t in good conscience carry on at this stage when we must now use ‘social distancing’ in the fight against this horrid illness.

We will continue posting on here so feel free to keep in touch by Facebook, email and phone. We will also be looking at what methods we can use to try to ensure that the most vulnerable in our community don’t feel too alone.

Thank you all for being such wonderful supporters and friends. We will see you again soon, hopefully in the not too distant future.


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

The Bridgend Centre (also known as Bollington Community Association) is a registered charity established in 1990. Since then it has grown from strength to strength, widening its appeal to local people as the first point of contact for community matters.

The Bridgend Centre is a community where everyone works together for the greater benefit of all. The Centre was set up to create a positive life, especially for those feeling isolated. Since 1990 we have continued to achieve this by breaking down social barriers through community integration and change in people’s lives. The primary aim is to improve the quality of social inclusion.

Our open door policy encourages all ages, social backgrounds, abilities and medical conditions to enhance their lives through interaction with others. By accepting and understanding differences, individuals can relate more easily to each other and be part of our extended family.
