Transforming Trafford! - FitzRoy

Transforming Trafford!

Published: April 26, 2016

A huge transformation has taken place at the FitzRoy Day and Community Service in Trafford, Manchester. Using money raised by fundraising events and grants, the whole building has been revamped and the members are loving it.

With a brand new kitchen, bigger art room, computer suite, and a relaxed and spacious communal area, the members are enjoying new activities, socialising and eating together. They’re cooking up a storm in the newly kitted out training kitchen which has a rise and fall hob, side opening low level ovens, height adjustable work spaces, and accessible equipment such as talking scales, jugs and timers, allowing more people to get involved in sessions.

Now set over two floors, they’ve managed to incorporate a multi-sensory room, break out room for peace and quiet, a lift, and an extra changing room with a bed and ceiling track hoist.

“Everyone is enjoying the new building, it is bright and spacious and fun to be in. We’re grateful for the money everyone helped fundraise to create this transformation.” 

Anna Walsh, Service Manager
