Community, Health and Wellbeing Services

Manchester Settlement has been running community activities for over 100 years! We continue this fabulous legacy by providing our wide-ranging community programme with and for those living in the local area.

Building relationships is at the heart of our community offer. We aim to provide a warm welcome for everyone who walks through our doors. This starts with our wonderfully helpful receptionists and stretches through our well-being services, food pantry, Stay and Play sessions and more.

We work in partnership with other local groups to provide community space and support. We also have room hire available for larger groups who wish to bring their services to our community.
