Our project is used by many authorities within Greater Manchester. We aim to provide our tenants with the necessary independent living skills enabling them to live independently when they leave Oaklea House.

Support 4 Progress: Turn Around Award

From beginnings as a self-help service consisting of local black parents coming together to talk about their concerns regarding the breakdown of the family unit, work unit, school and their community, Support 4 Progress has evolved into a Counselling Approved Training Centre providing professional counselling and quality training opportunities. We provide courses for young people aged 13-16, developing skills such as Empathy, Honesty, Communication and Listening Skills. Support 4 Progress believe that by understanding and supporting the cultural needs of the community, we can help to enhance emotional well-being and promote community cohesion.

Manchester City Council Crime and Disorder Team: Peace Activist Award

The Crime and Disorder Team is a multi-agency team based in the Town Hall, including members from Manchester City Council, National Probation Service and Greater Manchester Police. We work together to support the work of the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership. Together the agencies in the Partnership work with one overriding objective; to make Manchester a safer place to live, work and enjoy. We strive to do this by providing practical advice to help people reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime. On the Partnership website Making Manchester Safer we have advice on how you can prevent crime, including burglary, robbery and vehicle crime and information on what is happening in your area to prevent crime.
