WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON

Despite all the problems created by the Covid pandemic, staff and volunteers at The Nicky are working hard in preparation, hopefully, for a May reopening of the club facilities.

The Nicky’s Chief Executive, Michelle Wiseman said: “Although we’ve maintained contact with our members throughout the Covid Pandemic we’ve missed the face to face contact, and I know they have too. I’m delighted that, subject to advice from the appropriate authorities, we are planning for re-opening in May. We have completely refurbished and redecorated our premises, including the lounge, dining room and toilet facilities to make sure everything is Covid compliant and that our members will be able to enjoy themselves and participate in all our activities in a perfectly comfortable and safe environment.”

Throughout the pandemic, Michelle and her team, staff and volunteers, have kept in touch with the members and are routinely checking to ensure that they are all getting their vaccinations. “We are now preparing to visit all our members in their own homes as soon as it is safe to do so,” she said. “We have kept in touch over the past twelve months by telephone and online, providing many members with laptops and tablets, along with the required training to use them. The Centre is now taking shape and looks brighter and fresher and we hope to attract many new members too. We have also been distributing over 1,500 Meals on Wheels a month.

“We were determined to keep going and we’re nearly there thanks to the support of our dedicated team.”

I don’t know what I would do without The Nicky, it’s my second home

Manchester Jewish Community Care serves older, disabled and vulnerable members of the community by providing services which promote active, independent living.

The Nicky Alliance Centre is housed in a purpose built two storey building, adapted to the needs of disabled people. Over two hundred members, who live independently, attend the Centre several times a week.

Services we offer

MJCC has a track record in supporting vulnerable people. Since its inception in 1951 as the Jewish Blind Society, the charity developed services such as social activities at a club house, Meals on Wheels and holiday breaks for members.

With improvements in medical intervention for visual impairment, the charity addressed the needs of older and disabled people suffering from social isolation. In 1987 a state-of -the-art facility - The Nicky Alliance Day Centre was built, offering a full programme of activities.
