This Big Lottery funded project has enabled Community Reporter training to be delivered by Macc in collaboration with Reach out to the Community, the homeless support group from Chorlton. We have worked with the Homeless Partnership Group, Mustard Tree, Booths Centre, Lifeshare & Coffee 4 Craig in order that the voices & stories portrayed in this film convey a true reflection of the current situation in Manchester. 1 in every 154 people in Manchester are currently homeless.

Both Q&A panels will be made up of support groups, policy makers and residents of The Longford Centre hostel. It will be chaired by Councillor John Hacking

You can donate directly to Reach out to the Community via our website.
