About Talbot House


Talbot House has been supporting the families of people with learning disabilities in Manchester since 1976.

It started as a play scheme organised by four parents of children with complex needs, and despite some initial set backs when applying for funding they gained the support of a councillor who backed their appeal and they were given an initial grant of £200.

The play scheme was a success but the parents quickly realised that the biggest positive outcome was that they were able to share their experiences and support each other in a way that no other services could.

Spurred on by this knowledge the parents approached the council about finding some premises so that they could set up a parent support group. From the humble beginnings as The Peter Pan Centre in an old rectory to the dedicated centre that Talbot House uses today we have been supporting families in Manchester for 40 years and have changed thousands of lives as a result of the amazing work that we do.
