Welcome to the Manchester Resilience Hub

The 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 January 2018 (New Year's Eve).

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.

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. Click here for more information.

About The Hub

The service is hosted by Pennine Care in partnership with Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and Northwest Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Our staff are trained mental health professionals who are experts at working with people who have experienced a traumatic event. They will be able to talk with you about how you are doing and whether you may benefit from more help.
