  • Jobcentre Plus - resources to enable job-searchers to find work, provides information about training opportunities and administers claims for benefits such as Universal Credit.
  • Manchester Adult Education Services (MAES): Adult Education courses in English, Maths, ESOL and ICT
  • One Manchester - employment, skills, literacy, digital support, and enterprise services for One Manchester residents (opening date to be confirmed).
  • Gorton Medical Centre - a modern and well-equipped General Practice
  • Manchester Local Care Organisation - community based health care and clinics including Health Visitors, district nursing, podiatry and physiotherapy, plus a new integrated health and social care team working together to meet the needs of the local community.
  • Café (opening date to be confirmed).
  • Pharmacy (opening date to be confirmed).

The building opened in November 2022.

  • The library, Manchester Adult Education Service, the Neighbourhood health and social care team, and Jobcentre Plus are all operating form the site.
