• Support for Families

    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.

  • SmartStart

    We have been able to help over 2,600 children have a smart start to the beginning of the new school year by providing uniform and other school essentials.

  • Books Are GRRReat!

    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.

  • Heritage

    In 2019 we will be celebrating our 150th anniversary. We have a long and varied history but our focus has always been to support those living in poverty.

  • We're Recruiting!

    We are recruiting for a Fundraising Officer to join our team. With our 150th birthday just around the corner, it’s an exciting time to join us with an exceptionally busy year ahead.
