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.
Established 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.
Our absolute priority is the safety of the people who come into our Centre. We want to be a home-from-home where vulnerable people feel safe to visit and enjoy some social contact in a non-threatening environment. We believe we have a social responsibility to everyone in our community. Therefore we will continue to ask visitors to our Centre to wear masks if they can. We will also run activities with social distancing measures in place and limited numbers in order to ensure this.
Unfortunately we are not able to welcome dogs into the Centre due to the Health and Safety of all our users, many of whom are vulnerable.
