Elliot’s Place Project

Mental health is such a dominating issue within our community, particularly in young men.

Empowerment want to play our part in fighting against the stigma that surrounds men and their mental health. Together with family, friends and strangers we will be raising money to help build a support space, specifically for young men, who are struggling with their mental health. The space created at the Empowerment Sanctuary garden will be called ‘Elliot’s Place’ in memory of Elliot Taylor, who tragically took his own life after battling with mental health and having nowhere to turn for immediate help.

Current Fundraising For Elliot's Place

These are the projects we are fundraising for currently​
The Back Room Music Room Presents

Ryan Bradshaw from Back Room Music Booth event management speaks to Empowerment about their event on Sunday 26/09/21 in Manchester. 

We’re very excited to be launching the BRMB brand in Manchester this September.
BRMB sets out to bring in artists from all walks of life, both up and coming talent along with some big household names to events across the North West.

We’re buzzing to be hosting at Gullivers (the iconic bustling bar with a history of hosting live music, spoken word and much more!) with the indie band ‘Alright’ making their debut in Manchester after selling out their first show in Blackpool in just 3 days.

Support on the night will be from no other than Liverpool band The Arcadians and Manchester band Duvet.

We will be hosting interviews in the back room of Gullivers with the artists and will be speaking to you lot in the crowd as we want to make Back Room Music Booth more than just another event brand!

30% of proceedings will be donated to Elliot’s place – Empowerment charity. Elliot’s place is close to our hearts of the promoters as we personally lost a great friend, sadly to mental health.

Elliot’s place has been set up for young people who need support in this area and can drop In without having to wait months for an appointment. There will be access to on-site counselling, peer support activities and group activities, all led by young men who will use it.

Cant wait to see yous all there, let’s have it! Tickets on sale here
