Elmwood has had a long association with Manchester City Mission and as part of our church’s tithing we support the work financially.

For some time MCM’s Narrowgate Project has been the only overnight shelter in Greater Manchester. Now they are looking to extend this support into the daytime by introducing “Quarterway” where the Narrowgate guests can stay for the day instead of wandering the streets.

Quarterway is headed up by Barry Matley and aims to help people move on in their lives. They will be encouraged to take some responsibility for themselves and learn life skills for example they recently took part in a litter picking project.

Barry is looking for volunteers who could offer as little as 2 hours a week, although 4 hours are recommended. Full support and training will be given.
