Wood Street Mission

Wood Street Mission works to alleviate the effects of poverty on children and families living in Manchester and Salford. We provides families in need with free clothing, bedding, baby equipment and toys. We also offer families extra help at Christmas with free parcels of food and toys.

We're small charity doing a big job. Greater Manchester has some of the highest levels of child poverty in the UK, but Wood Street is the only organisation in the area to provide these free services. Last year 9,000 people were referred to us for help - that's the equivalent of a disadvantaged child or struggling parent being referred every hour of every day for the entire year.
