No-one chooses poverty. But right now, 75,480 children across Manchester and Salford are living in poverty and their families are forced to make tough choices every day.
For the last 150 years, Wood Street Mission has been supporting families with the essentials for day to day life – children’s clothes, school uniform, toys, bedding and toiletries – and projects focused on reading and literacy to improve children’s life chances.
Whether it’s time, money or essential items, your support for this work can make all the difference to struggling families.
Poverty blights children’s lives and life chances. We can only fight it with your support. Join us to find out how you can help.
All our services are free for families in Manchester and Salford to access on referral.
Families need to be referred to Wood Street Mission by a professional who knows their circumstances well – for example, someone at their child’s/children’s school, a social worker, health visitor or support worker.
