The Anthony Seddon Centre was formed from the huge success we were having with The Shop. The Shop was originally created to provide a supportive environment where customers could chat about their mental health, and share their worries and joys whilst browsing. It also allowed us to display and share information about other organisations in the Tameside area.
As the charity and its customer base grew, the numbers of people looking for information, support or just someone to talk to outgrew what The Shop could cope with. We decided to attain another properly so we could solely dedicate providing a supportive environment to people with mental health worries. The Centre allows us to provide a safe, supportive environment for anyone: we can display and share information about mental health services/support available locally, and offer facilities to chat comfortably about anything. It also serves as the base where most of the groups, sessions and projects we offer are held.
