Photograph of the Multi Purpose Conference RoomThe Haughton Green Centre is located on Tatton Road, opposite the Haughton Green Library and near the doctor's surgery. The centre is run jointly by the Haughton Green Community Forum (made up of volunteers from the local community) and the NHS Primary Care Trust. This recently refurbished venue provides a base for a wide variety of activities, including both leisure activities and the chance to improve skills through training.

The multi purpose Conference Room is the centre's main facility with regard to training. As well as providing a venue for various courses, this room has also hosted local opportunities fairs, with agencies such as Job Centre Plus and providers such as Tameside College in attendance.

There is also a smaller room, which is used part time by the primary care trust, but can also be used for courses and activities. The front of the Haughton Green Centre also houses a pram shed, where prams can be left safely while attending a course or activity at the centre.
