Well-being Support Groups


Our Well-being Group focuses on promoting positive mental well-being and offers a place where D/deaf people can come to share experiences and talk about their lives. The group was established to help service users improve self-confidence and try new activities that can support positive well-being and health. It is also a great place to meet new people and socialise.

We're still open!

"Now more than ever it is important that we look after our well-being and stay in touch with our friends. Come and join us either online or at the centre to socialise in a safe, socially distanced space."

Service User Feedback:

“Lockdown was hard for me, I could only go for a walk in the park, I enjoyed that but wasn’t allowed to do anything else. I joined the Wellbeing Zoom session, which is only one hour but I am too anxious to attend Manchester Deaf Centre. I feel safer to stay at home, I am too worried to attend MDC."
“I found making the Welcome poster to be fun, I enjoyed it."
"I love art and it was nice to chat with deaf friends."
