The Message Trust

Charity description

The Message Trust logo
The Message Trust is a Christian charity based in Manchester. We exist to break the cycle of hopelessness, apathy, anti-social behaviour, aimlessness, and criminal activity that many of our young people experience and participate in. Our belief is that young people aren’t just a problem in need of a solution, but they can be the solution. We work with the hardest to reach youth in schools, local communities and prisons in Greater Manchester and beyond. We take an innovative approach to youth work which transforms the social, emotional, and spiritual lives of the young people that we work with and equips them to become the positive change their community needs. None of this would be possible without the generous financial support we receive from so many people. We are keen to enter into more patnerships and do more work with your help.

All donations help The Message Trust spread the Gospel message to young people whilst delivering practical solutions to the issues they face. We work in the most deprived areas across the nation to bring about positive change and raise aspirations. Our music and theatre groups perform in dozens of schools and prisons giving positive messages. Our prison workers teach Christian life principles to inmates and helps them reintegrate into society upon release. Only 13% of ex-offenders from our programmes re-offend (National Average is over 60%). Our training hub gives young people in long term unemployment and ex-offenders jobs and training. We have a mobile youth centre and 19 Eden community projects across the UK dedicated to reversing the trends of poverty and anti-social behaviour on estates. These activities install self-worth in young people whilst supplying opportunities for a better future. If this excites you as well, then please join us and consider making a donation.
