A warm welcome is assured when you visit our Mappin Street Centre. We moved back to our new centre in 2009 after being in temporary accommodation for 2 years whilst our original 1930's building was demolished and our new centre constructed. It is a modern, welcoming building and is the hub of many activities and services.
