About Us


The Manda Centre has been established in the memory of Amanda Jane Duffy.
Tragically, Amanda was murdered in Hamilton in May 1992.
Amanda was a promising Drama Student with her whole life before her. Her talent, personality, drive, commitment and ambition combined with her warm and generous spirit have been lost to all those who knew and loved her and to all those whose lives she would have touched.
The Centre is called “Manda” because as she was growing up younger siblings and friends omitted the “A”
So: The Manda Centre

Project Overview

The Manda Centre is a Registered Charity with no
affiliation to any religious or political party
and we are open to all sections of the community.

We treat everyone that attends The Manda Centre with confidentiality, dignity and respect and develop our service in response to the demand of all those we support.


The Manda Centre was founded in March 2016 by a number of people with personal and professional experience of Trauma, Loss & Personal Crisis to provide a level of support not available from any other organisation

The Manda Centre has identified through thereferrals we receive from a number ofagencies, the high level of loss, isolation and loneliness that affects our service users.
