How you can help in Manchester this Christmas!

My two colleagues and I have just come from dropping off donations at  Emmeline’s Pantry. Here at Macc we decided that one of the ways we could practice what we preach is by supporting a local Christmas Appeal, we asked for suggestions and picked at random. Emmeline’s Pantry was the name that came out of the hat.

Volunteer Mentor opportunities - Refugees and Mentors

8 Jun 2018 - 14:17 by cheryl.mcalister

Nurse. Construction Worker. Accountant. Mum. Business owner. Farmer. Dentist. Student - just some of the lives people led before they were forced to flee their home countries and become refugees. Lives defined by work, education or family.

If you live in Manchester, Salford or nearby and have lots of UK work experience - in any sector - you can apply to be a volunteer mentor to make a difference to refugees' employment prospects.
In Greater Manchester unemployment is 4.9%* compared to around 44%* for refugees.
