Soup N Smiles
The Soup 'N' Smiles project is a mobile pop up food kitchen based in the heart of Manchester city centre at Cathedral Gardens. What started off with a bit of soup, a few slices of bread and a handful of service users over three years ago has now rapidly grown into being a key service for many of the homeless and needy in Manchester where they are served a nutritional two-course meal. We have also expanded our service to having the food kitchen run on a Saturday afternoon as well as a Wednesday evening.
Feed a Friend
There are around 13 million people living below the poverty line in the UK. Every day people across the UK struggle to feed themselves and their families. People have to resort to what are known as food banks in order to get some basic food parcels to see them get through several days at a time.
The Feed a Friend project operates a food bank in Levenshulme as well as making regular food drops to other organisations around Manchester.
My Tech Buddy
My Tech Buddy tackles the digital divide which exists in our society and we look to equip those who may not have been brought up with technology, with basic ICT skills.
Some of the essential skills My Tech Buddy aims to equip adults with are those needed to communicate online, create accounts, stay safe online and general web browsing.
My Social Buddy
My Social Buddy is a bespoke service that is offered to patients at local hospices as well as residents in care homes and supported housing.
Its a service which provides a personal buddy to spend time with those who may feel isolated and provides them with someone to chat to, play games or run errands for them. The Buddies can spend time with people in lots of different ways, the service is whatever the individuals need it to be.
The Awareness Project is a project where volunteers trained to deliver the service conduct questionnaires with the general public.
The purpose behind this service is to first and foremost gain an understanding of what the general public have to say about their community, the people in that community and to share their concerns on what matters to them most. This can include matters of religion, social services, community initiatives and local and national news.
The Unveiling Islam workshops tackle a variety of important topics about Islam, delivered by professional and engaging presenters, based on exam board curriculum and designed to closely mirror the learning outcomes of Key Stage 3 and 4 syllabuses. The aim of the workshop is to promote positive academic progress as well as exceptional personal development for students.
