Those struggling mentally, financially or physically from the effects of covid are set to benefit from almost £500,000 of funding.

People living in Trafford who are affected can get help from eight support groups across the borough, which are being supported by grants from housing group Trafford Housing Trust.

A total of £465,000 has been made available following the easing of covid restrictions and will primarily be used to support people dealing with the after effects of living with covid for the past two years and the challenges that has brought.

CFC is delivering counselling from Limelight, Trafford Housing Trust’s community and wellbeing hub in Old Trafford.

Jo Allen, chief executive officer of CFC, said: “We are so excited that we are able to offer our service to the community around Limelight. This is something we have been working towards for several years – ensuring that we have a pool of fully qualified counsellors able to work with all ages and all issues in a range of languages.

“The funding ensures we can provide support for children and young people from the age of five years and upwards, as well as for adults, couples, and for families. We want to provide support through the emotional roller coaster that is life, but more than this, to help people find their strengths, to cultivate positive coping strategies and to increase their problem-solving capacity.”

Helen Boden, CEO at I AM Celebrating Autism in Greater Manchester (I AM), said: “We are delighted and incredibly grateful to receive support. The funding will be used to support our Youth Groups and our Families, Friends and Carers Group.

“At I AM we understand the challenges that can come with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) but most importantly we look beyond these perceived limits to the individual and work to nurture and develop the potential of each and every individual. We provide opportunities for social connections and friendships to be made in a safe and supported environment through our social and leisure activities delivered through our Youth Groups and Adult Groups. I AM enables individuals to experience new things by removing barriers and building confidence.

“As a result of the generous funding we will be able to continue to deliver our important work and extend our reach and change the lives of individuals with ASC and those who support them.”

Zoe Taylor, communities manager at Trafford Housing Trust, said: “I am so proud of our hands-on approach to ensuring we are tackling the impact of covid on our customers’ wellbeing, as well as supporting the workforce that has done a great job helping vulnerable people. We know people are under huge pressure and we are proactively working towards increasing the ways we help people live better lives.”
