We hold at the core an idea that gender matters and that women are the beating heart of communities and families.
Our centres provide a safe and non-judgemental female only space. Whatever your needs, you can drop-in or telephone during our opening times to speak to a member of our team to find out how can help you.
Maundy Relief operates as both a “first port of call” and a “last resort” for many people. As a well-known organisation embedded in the local community, people contact us for a myriad of reasons: help with furniture, household goods and food; counselling for those in mental distress; welcome, hospitality and companionship for the lonely; advice and informal advocacy for those struggling with bureaucracy or those who slip through the net of statutory services; group activities and training for those ready to move on in their lives.
Our organisation is a community of staff, volunteers, regular service users (“guests”) and well-wishers in the wider local community. Maundy Relief has a profound influence on all the people who are involved with it at whatever level. We believe that change is best brought about by an immediacy of response combined with building sustained and holistic relationships with those we encounter.
We’re a Recovery Infrastructure Organisation. This means we provided a network of support throughout your journey and beyond. In short, we’re here for you whenever you need us. Also, we can help you find activities or any training opportunities you might wish to pursue. These opportunities can help you with relationships, housing, education, and employment.
We also have links with the Lancashire User Forum (LUF). You can attend this open and friendly forum any time during your recovery. The LUF is a place where you can meet people with similar interests and aspirations. Likewise, you can listen to talks or take part in workshops.
The Consortium is a member based charitable company – established and incorporated as a company in October 2011 and registered as a charity in December 2012. The organisations that make up the consortium are drawn from the Voluntary Charity and Faith Sector across Lancashire and the North West.
The work of the Consortium benefits children, families and adults of all ages in the local community in Lancashire and the North West.
Delivery of provision, through our member organisations, is taking place in some of the most deprived communities with a focus on vulnerable residents within those communities.
