What's new at CFC?
Almost £88 million of #NationalLottery funding has just been shared between thousands of community projects in England, CFC included for which we are very grateful.
This money raised by National Lottery players will support over 3,000 good causes like ours that help communities to thrive, by tackling issues such as loneliness and isolation.

Co-op Local Community Fund
We are working with the Co-op on an ambitious plan to fund an ice cream cart for the garden of the Café in the Park. Money is being raised via Co-op members who give to us via the Local Community Fund.

Café Garden Officially Opened
Last year we successfully raised over £6000 in a crowdfunding campaign to revamp access to our café and garden. Work was completed earlier this year and we invited supporters to a grand opening on Easter Monday. As the sun set in the background of Stamford Park, Trustee Tony Butterworth thanked the assembled for their continued support. Mayor of Trafford, Councillor Tom Ross then said a few kind words celebrating the success of The Counselling & Family Centre and its pivotal role in the Trafford and wider Greater Manchester community. A lovely buffet was laid on and our wonderful supporters toasted the rewards of their contributions. Thanks to you all!
