Since 1994, Mustard Tree has transformed the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are trapped in poverty or homelessness, by enabling them to gain the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their full potential.
Our focus is on tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty by offering:
Provision: When people are in crisis we offer food, clothing and furniture. By meeting their basic needs we establish a relationship of trust and open the door of welcome, hope and possibility.
Progression: We offer life-skills, training, volunteering, education, mentoring and employment opportunities to help people to increase their resilience and enable them to escape poverty and homelessness – for good.
Partnership: We work collaboratively with our beneficiaries, enabling them to contribute to the Mustard Tree Community and work with them to set self-determined goals, as well as working with individuals, agencies, businesses and community groups to broker long-term solutions to the poverty and inequality in our city.
