Reach out to the Community, Cracking Good Food and Macc are looking for Community Reporters to help Manchester’s homeless tell their stories.
If you work with an organization that helps those most in need, why not join the FREE training coming up from the September 25th, 2017, to become that reporter.
Homelessness and food poverty are growing problems. Manchester has a number of projects supporting homeless people and we feel that the public need to hear their stories. How did they end up in this situation? The reasons are very complex.
We will together, through support, video training and food, bring the voices of those most in need to life in short 1 minute films. These will be edited and added to by a filmmaker, enabling an overview of Manchester’s homelessness to emerge but most importantly ways in which we can all help. We will launch this film publicly, inviting Andy Burnham, Greater Manchester’s Mayor, with a view to making positive changes to eradicate this situation. The launch will be on Saturday October 7th, at Reach out to the Community’s new hub on 448, Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton M21 0BQ from 12 – 3pm. We will cook a one pot nutritious dinner, with help from volunteers, which will be delivered directly to charities in town feeding those in need and we will also be outlining the many other ways in which help is urgently needed.
