Manor Gardens delivers a range of Living Well and Early Years Services to people who come to us for help and support to manage their own health and wellbeing and maximise their independence.
We work in partnership with individuals, communities and local voluntary and statutory services to identify gaps in provision and unmet need. Our services are diverse and relfect the great diversity of the communities we work with.
Our Centre lies at the heart of our community but our services reach out across North London and beyond.
We support people to access local services to improve their health and wellbeing by supporting them to sort out issues around housing, benefits, finances, immigration and disabilities. Some of this work is done by bilingual interpreters and advocates.
We enable mainly refugee and migrant families to access healthcare and give their children the best start in life through practical advice, advocacy, peer support and bilingual support.
Our pioneering work on FGM provides public awareness, individual support, therapeutic support and training for professionals.
We support older people to make new friendships and expand their social networks through matching them up with befriending volunteers who visit and phone them each week as well as help us take them on trips and events.
Our Stroke Service supports people affected by strokes and long-term health conditions to regain more control in their lives and take an active part in our community. Our one-to-one approach provides information, support and advice to enable people to live with their disabilities and take part in interesting and stimulating activites at our Stroke Club.
Some of the people we work with need longer-term support to improve their mental wellbeing. We provide group and individual therapeutic services for specific groups.
Our Wellbeing Service promotes physical and mental health for everyone and breaks down the stigma around mental health. Our network of Mental Health Champions raise awareness in the community and support individuals. We provide information and signposting to enable people to find the help they need.
Our two Nurseries help children up to the age of five learn through play. Our approach to early years learning at Manor Gardens was rated as Outstanding in All Areas by Ofsted in May 2016.
