Making Kind Connections with Manchester Mind 

Making Kind Connections with Manchester Mind 

Our Jigsaw Foundation has partnered up with Manchester Mind and awarded £15,000 in funding to the Kind Connections project which aims to support local residents with their mental health.

The project will provide weekly sessions in which a listening ear, a warm meal, wellbeing activities and a safe space will be available for 100 Jigsaw residents across a 12 month period.

A dedicated group of staff and volunteers will be on hand to lead the sessions, based at the Zion Community Centre in Hulme, and will be there for all attendees to discuss anything on their mind.

Referrals can be made for any Jigsaw Homes resident living in Hulme, Moss Side, Chorlton, Rusholme, Whalley Range, Withington and Burnage.

Tara Kinsella, Service Manager at Manchester Mind, said “This service is a lifeline to many people in the community and thanks to funding from the Jigsaw Foundation; we can continue to provide much needed mental health support to those who may struggle to access it.”
