Manchester Cicada Charity (originally the Manchester Cicada club) was created for those people who had received their implant at the Manchester Centre and their families; membership has since been extended to anyone who has a cochlear implant.
We have now become a registered charity called Manchester CICADA but still maintain the original aims and objectives of the club.
As an association of people who have had implant operations, its purpose is to establish a bond and fellowship between these people through social events and related activities and by sharing experiences to help post operative implantees gain the maximum benefit from the operation. Because of our origins, we work closely with the Manchester Implant team and have provided volunteers for research projects over the years.
