Ancoats Dispensary Trust Needs You!

Ancoats Dispensary Trust (ADT) is a grass roots community group dedicated to saving and restoring the Grade 11 Listed Ardwick and Ancoats Dispensary for the people of Manchester.

The project aims to capture and share the history of this pioneering building’s lasting witness to urban poverty, ill health and social welfare, and transform it into a thriving sustainable, mixed-use community hub owned by the community, for the community. The Dispensary will be focused on health and wellbeing activities, reflecting the building’s original purpose as a place of healing, and will also contain commercial space for charities and social enterprises whose work reflects the socially responsible vision for the new Dispensary.

We’re looking for a new Secretary to help us realise this vision and help manage the Trust’s record keeping.

If you’ve an eye for detail for figures, like a sense of order, and have a passion for making a difference we want to hear from you!
