Welcome to Making a Difference Tameside

Environment for success

Our team aims to create the right conditions whereby people are respected, valued and do not have to worry about the views of anyone else.

We recognise the many areas of a person's life where development may be needed, such as low self-esteem, confidence, trust and belief in oneself. Through using skills old and new, we are able to help develop these areas and encourage people to take responsibility for their lives. Ultimately helping people to progress to a point where they are then able to help others in their own journey.

The workshop format involves a variety of activities to suit the needs of each individual. Each person is supported by a skilled team with excellent knowledge and experience in the mental health field.
