The Winnicott Centre is Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service for children and young people in Central Manchester has got a makeover and will be opening today.
The centre was built in the early 80’s and has not been upgraded in any aspect since this time.
The environment was poor and furnishing outdated. Children and families who attend the centre have had very traumatic experiences and are under a level of distress.
The charity received a very generous donation of £200k from one of its major donors and fundraised a further £50k to complete this project.
The newly refurbished centre is now a more comfortable and welcoming space for all our children/young people and their families making their journey at the unit much more positive.
The Not only is the unit now more aesthetically pleasing, but waiting lists times for patients has also improved.
