Greater Manchester Resilience Hub strapline.jpg
Greater Manchester Resilience Hub was set up in response to the Manchester Arena Attack in 2017 to co-ordinate care and support for thousands of children, young people and adults whose mental health and/or emotional wellbeing was affected.

Our staff also supported people affected by the attack in Manchester on 31 December 2018 (New Year's Eve), and the Arndale stabbings on 11 October 2019.

We provide a central point for mental health advice and support. Where one-to-one therapy is needed, clinicians work with other organisations across the country to help you receive care from services close to where you live.

We are based in Greater Manchester but support everyone who was affected, wherever you may live.

The Manchester attacks were traumatic events which we know can cause severe emotional shock. We can offer phone-based advice, support and information and make calls on your behalf if you are struggling to get the help you need.

Who the hub is for:
  • Everyone who has been directly affected by the incident
  • Family members who have been affected
  • Professionals who have been affected
  • Professional seeking clinical advice about their service users

We are inviting everyone who has been affected by the attack to take part in a wellbeing screening programme, to identify those who need further help and assist us with future planning.

The hub is open throughout the Manchester Arena inquiry, from Monday to Thursday 9am until 5pm and on a Friday from 9am until 1pm.

Please do contact us, by phone on 0333 009 5071 or by email, if you would like any emotional wellbeing support.

The Manchester Arena attack was a traumatic event and the impact can be powerfully felt, particularly during legal proceedings.
