For people living with mental health needs, TLC St Luke's is a one-stop shop where participants can access a range of support, advice and activity. We are friendly and informal, and getting involved is an easy process.
Based at St Luke's Church in Longsight, we offer a holistic range of interrelated services addressing: mental health and well-being; the arts, creativity and expression; healthy living; faith; community; and advocacy, guidance and advice.
We provide a variety of drop-in sessions and activities. Services such as counselling, community groups, art studio sessions, and complementary therapy treatments have allowed those attending the St Luke's Centre over the years to improve their social networks, gain improved mental, physical and emotional well-being, and gain self-esteem and confidence.
