Lottery Funding

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. Find out more:


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!

Altrincham Grammar for Boys Donate to CFC

A thank you to the staff and students at Altrincham Grammar for Boys for their generous donation of £1000. Sarah Barker from CFC was delighted to be presented with the cheque.

Expanding our work in local schools and colleges

We are very excited about our ongoing expansion of work in local schools and colleges, most recently at St Anthony's Catholic College in Urmston and Trafford College. Currently we have counsellors working in 9 schools and colleges and we continue to develop this service.


A BIG thank you to all our amazing supporters who have now raised a total of £247 for The Counselling & Family Centre. Sign up here:
