Charity description

Northmoor Community Association logo
NCA is a charity based in Longsight and consists of a Community Centre and Laundrette. Our mission is to help improve the quality of life for people living and or working within the neighbourhood of Northmoor and surrounding areas; relieving poverty, promoting health, advancing education and providing accessible and welcoming community facilities for all.     

Since 2000 the Centre has provided a variety of free services, for all ages, to the community and surrounding areas. NCA was set up by local people to provide and manage a Community Centre; the philosophy was simple – create a supportive and welcoming place, central to the Northmoor neighbourhood, where people would feel comfortable to come into if they had a need.

From this it developed into what we have today, an integral location for community development, managed by an elected body of volunteers to represent the needs, views and the voice of the community and to positively promote the neighbourhood of Northmoor through the provision of local facilities and services. The resulting benefit to the community is astronomical and NCA works consistently with other organisations and of continuous development and innovation.  

The Youth Can Do project provides a safe, productive space for young people aged 8-16 to do their homework, use computers and printing, take part in workshops and arts and crafts. It is open for three hours, four afternoons a week and is delivered by a mix of study support workers and dedicated volunteers. An average of 22 young people attend each afternoon; £4.50 would support one young person to access one session a week.

The Next Step project provides adults with HMRC information and support, welfare advice and help with job searching, as well as access to free online courses, from beginners computer courses to industry standard courses such as Food Hygiene. Participants are also able to access services delivered by Self Help, who provide a range of support and opportunities for people living with mental health problems. The project is open for three hours, four mornings a week and delivered by staff and volunteers. An average of 28 people attend the project each week; £15.50 would support one person a week to develop their skills and create opportunities.
