Young People

We aim to supports young Mancunians to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to succeed. We do this in a variety of ways; by funding work experience to support access to some of Manchester’s top employers, by providing holidays and shorty breaks away form Manchester to build life skills and by working with young people individually to support their next steps to becoming our city’s future leaders!

Stronger Communities

We love Manchester.

We love to help, encourage and enable people who want to make a difference in our communities. We do this in many ways, including providing grants to community groups, supporting individuals to overcome disadvantages and barriers, and providing Volunteers to make a difference.

Therapeutic Family Courses with One Education Outdoors

Every year we fund carefully selected Manchester families to leave the city and travel to Windermere to experience a family course at Ghyll Head Outdoor Education Centre. The young people and their parents take part in a range of outdoor activities, helping to build confidence, self esteem and new skills. The families spend valuable time together away from ‘normal life’.

This project supports young people and their families who are facing challenging situations and has had a huge impact.

This is an incredibly positive experience for everyone involved – family bonds are strengthened, lasting friendships are formed and the young people and their parents leave with an experience they won’t forget.

Thanks to our supporters in 2018 the Charity has been able to fund 48 young people and their parents to benefit from this life changing experience. ​​​​​​​
