The Message Trust

With Christian values providing the impetus, and a track record of over 15 years, The Message Trust focuses on the needs of Manchester's hardest-to-reach young people.

Many inner-city areas suffer from poor housing, high crime, unemployment and a high drop-out rate from school. Cut off from advice and help, with little support from home, marginalised teenagers struggle to break out of the cycle of deprivation. The Message Trust has a passion to enable every young person to discover a sense of purpose, community and self-worth.

Our work in schools, communities and prisons brings us into contact with around 100,000 young people a year.
