Mary Seacole House opened in October 2016 and since then we have formed excellent links with our local community. We are ideally situated close to shops and local facilities, and Bolton Town Centre can be reached in under 30 minutes by bus. We are also lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful green spaces such as Hulton Park and local farms.
We have lots of activities for our residents to enjoy including snooker, fitness classes, dog walking and cooking classes to name a few. Residents also have the opportunity to enrol in local college courses, and we help residents to find full or part-time employment if they wish. We believe in celebrating every achievement and supporting each other to take the next step.
We encourage our residents to be actively involved in our monthly residents’ meeting, where our team and our residents come together to share feedback and new ideas.
