In 2017, we were lucky enough to acquire the amazing premises we have today. Manningham Mills community centre is located in Listers Mill. If you’re from Bradford you’re bound to know it as it dominates the sky line from many areas and is a huge piece of our city history. ⠀
Listers Mill represents our new start as a charity, a space for us to grow and develop, build our offerings and help more people than ever. Our centre offers and safe and social hub for people to drop in for a chat, a meeting, support and equipment or even just a quick coffee. ⠀
2020 was planned to be our growth year. We had a plethora of positive changes coming but, like everyone, we have had to very quickly change and adapt the way we do things here at Equality Together.
It’s been a difficult year for everyone, and rather than just being our growth year, it’s become a reflection year too. It has made us all even more determined and focused to keep doing what we do.
If Covid-19 has taught us anything, its that we have never been more needed.
Equality Together has been helping the people of Bradford for over 40 years. We have helped change the lives of tens of thousands of people. Together we’ve led the way in advocating for and with our service users and have become a pillar of our community. We’ve been there for people when no one else has and we plan on doing so for as long as we possibly can.
We’re currently overhauling our website to make our donation page more user friendly and we’ll be adding some great content, blogs, fundraising ideas, information and advice as well as some additional accessibility features.
Manningham Mills is a great place for people to come to gain advice, support, shop, drop into the community centre, engage with our volunteers, become volunteers themselves, or find out more about our services in a zero-pressure environment – we really can’t wait!
Our Thrift shop is up and running and we’ll be getting the cafeteria ready. We’ll have staff and volunteers on hand to make delicious hot and cold drinks, snacks and meals as well as hosting pop up events and networking.
We’re really excited about the next few years, and we’d love you to be here with us.
From all of us here, THANK YOU for your continued support.
