At Gaddum, we treat everyone as individuals, understanding their world to offer a range of support that’s right for them.

Our promise of tailored support is made possible by our breadth and depth of knowledge, through our unwavering commitment to the local people of Greater Manchester.

What we do

We have three main focus areas:

  • Therapy services (including palliative and bereavement support)
  • Statutory advocacy
  • Carers support service (including provision for young people)

We work with children, adults and families, and offer a range of services; listening, advising and supporting them to a better tomorrow.

Adult counselling service

Our counselling service offers fixed term therapy for common mental health conditions. This service can be accessed by anyone, regardless of locations. Therapy usually lasts for 6 to 12 sessions.

The service is primarily staffed by trainee and volunteer therapists, who are all registered with professional bodies.

Getting Help, Rochdale

We offer a service called Getting Help, which provides holistic support to help clients overcome barriers in meeting health and social care needs which are impacting on their wellbeing and mental health. The team aims to collaborate with clients to:

  • Address unmet health and social care needs.
  • Build resilience.
  • Enhance independence.

We offer support to individuals whose low mood/anxiety is primarily being caused by any of the following:

  • Debt/finances.
  • Loneliness/isolation.
  • Homelessness, housing or living situation.
  • Drugs and alcohol.
  • Role as carer.

As Getting Help is a part of the Thinking Ahead partnerships, referrals can be made into the central Thinking Ahead referral hub, and will be allocated to the most suitable part of the pathway this could be Getting Help, or onto the mental health pathway provided by Big Life or Pennine Care. After referral, the person referred will be contacted for assessment.

To contact the service please call 01706 751180

Children and families paediatric palliative care service

This specialist service supports the families of children with a life limiting or a life threatening illness. Our service is also offered after a child has passed away. Gaddum’s trained staff are able to work with parents, siblings and carers.

We provide an opportunity for individuals to talk about and explore their feelings with someone who is not directly involved in their situation.  We can work together to clarify thoughts and feelings, and develop coping strategies for the difficult times. 

Family support can help family members to talk more openly with each other so they are able to understand and support each other.
