We like to pride ourselves on doing our bit for the local area and so we have aligned ourselves with a local charity in Macclesfield. We will be donating 5% of our wedding income to these guys as well as donating our time and photography whenever possible.
They have some exciting things planned to raise awareness and money so look out for more information on their website and social media. You can find them on facebook and twitter or click the logo to head straight to their website. Here is some more information on who they are and the awesome work they do.
Just Drop In first opened on Chestergate, Macclesfield in late 2001 operating as a one-stop-shop offering information and support. We moved to Great King Street five years later and to the current Duke Street premises in 2011. Responding to need, Just Drop-In introduced a free counselling service. In 2012 MyPad was developed to help build skills for healthy and independent living. 2017 saw the introduction of the Foundations Service, providing early help and friendship groups for our younger clients. Just Drop-In also provides a range of exciting projects that change in response to identified needs within the community.
This year Just Drop-In is continuing to deliver the Up and Running health and fitness project and is also piloting a counselling initiative in Tytherington High School. The charity also works on specially contracted initiatives, usually in partnership with other services. Work is currently been undertaken to deliver counselling in conjunction with Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. Just Drop-In is also an active partner in the Emotionally Healthy Schools Programme. Across all of our services we seek to:
Remove red tape and to promote quick and easy access
Ensure our work is outcome focused, based on best evidence and built around need.
Provide a person centred, professional, transparent and accountable approach.
Promote and value our localism, celebrating community involvement and volunteering.
Reduce stigma, promote resilience and seek to intervene early where ever possible
Encourage young people to have a voice and actively participate in the life of the charity.
For over a decade Just Drop-In has established an excellent reputation for the quality of its support for young people in Macclesfield.
