My First Month with Reach Out

My name is Alison (Ally to my friends) I started as Project Manager with ROC, a month ago. What a month it has been! I thought I would write this to introduce myself to you and also give you a little insight into how my first month has been.  I  have been in the homeless sector for 10 years, working on various projects with a number of organisations (as both volunteer and staff member) including the winter night shelters, a community food […]

Last month, the charity’s efforts and perseverance through this hard time were recognised as we were honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This week we will be celebrating […]

Reach Out Get a Move On, whilst you get your groove on!

Ellie Murphy Since mid-March, Reach Out To The Community, along with many other Chorlton establishments, has been closed. Despite our staff working endlessly behind the scenes, helping the homeless and vulnerable people within the community, we have really missed our doors being open to anyone and everyone – from our regular visitors and supporters coming to chat about our existing projects, people making donations or customers popping in for a good rummage to find some great bargains. Last weekend was […]
