The Moulding Foundation has donated £5million to Seashell in support of our Project Transformation to build a new school and campus.

Seashell’s Project Transformation, costing over £50million, will take over five years to complete to build a new school, redevelop the existing college, build a new four-court sports hall, gym and pavilion, new training facilities, community engagement and administration facilities and a new assessment and early years centre.

Jodie Moulding, Founder and Trustee of The Moulding Foundation said: “This ambitious project will make a huge difference to the lives of children of all ages and their families in Manchester and the surrounding areas.

We are incredibly proud to be supporting such a fantastic charity, helping them to extend their reach and support many more families and children in desperate need.”

Speaking of the £5million donation, Seashell Chief Executive and Principal, Jolanta McCall, said: “We cannot thank The Moulding Foundation enough for its generosity towards Seashell’s Project Transformation.

“Project Transformation has been years in the planning and we are delighted to see works beginning on site. This donation will help build a new future for thousands of children and young people with acute special needs.”

The first phase of Project Transformation will see a new school developed which is expected to open in autumn 2022, and a new site entrance and reception building, again expected to open in autumn 2022.
