We are delighted to be able to offer you this 'one stop' support service five days a week. Whatever your needs, please get in touch and we will either help you ourselves or point you in the right direction.
Aimed at D/deaf individuals within Greater Manchester. Our Wellbeing, Advocacy, Information, Training and Employment Service (W.A.I.T.E.) aims to increase the D/deaf community’s health and well-being, which can be severely impacted by lack of communication and service cuts.
“Since the WAITE service has been set-up, I have been able to access information, support and activities in my first language. Communication has always been a barrier for me and because of this I have been lonely and isolated. I do not know what I would have done without this service. The staff at MDC are very friendly and helpful and I would like to say a big thank you to them all for supporting me.”
We offer remote support, and face-to-face appointments at Manchester Deaf Centre, Crawford House, Booth Street East, Manchester. We also offer drop-in services and group activites.
Should your needs be beyond our remit, we try to ensure you will receive the support you need by signposting and keeping regular contact. If you prefer to communicate with a female or a male let us know. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, you are very welcome. To contact individual staff members see below, here is our general contact:
