    We support families living on a low income in Manchester and Salford, who struggle to make ends meet. We offer help with the practical things that can make a big difference to everyday life.

    In 2018, we have been able to help 3,199 children have a smart start to the beginning of the new school year by providing uniform and other school essentials.

    Book Clubs

    We run Book Clubs in the school holidays to provide thousands of free books for children, to encourage an enjoyment of reading and improve literacy.
