Who we are
Since 1994, Mustard Tree has transformed the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are experiencing poverty and homelessness, by enabling them to gain the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their full potential.
We exist because chronic poverty, extreme inequality, and severe disadvantage exist.
At Mustard Tree we believe everyone should be able to feed themselves and their family, live in a secure home, be healthy, find meaningful work and have the chance to discover their talents. We believe that with a hand-up, not just a hand-out people can be given the tools to build a future away from homelessness and poverty for good.
We create opportunities for people to help themselves through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work and improvements to health and wellbeing, alongside new experiences to encourage aspiration.
Our focus is on tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty and homelessness.
