Testimonials

Hear what people and partners think of our work and how we are improving the lives of all residents. 

" It was great to work with Mancunian Way at The Big Weekend event in 2016. Having experts in youth engagement on the ground advising young people on how to stay safe and also liaising directly with our security team had a real, measurable impact. The project displayed a great example of partnership working. "

" I can’t thank you and your team enough for the impact you are having on the community here in Gorton. I have been able to share these figures with the local Council and Councillors at the last two meetings I have been at for Gorton North and South and they too are really encouraged by the work which is being undertaken. "

" The work Mancunian Way are doing is vital in deprived areas like Gorton, where disillusionment with the system among young people is high. It is great to see youths being engaged with on their own level, by people who show a genuine concern for their well-being. Working with Mancunian Way has allowed me as a PCSO to interact informally with local young people and help them to see me as someone who cares too, rather than just another figure of authority. "

" I think the value of the project (Stay Safe) is youth workers going to where the young people are and where they may be vulnerable and at risk. We should all be committed to prevention. "

14/01/2015 - Ann Coffey, Member of Parliament


" I attended the official launch of this project (Stay Safe) at the Virgin Money Lounge in the city centre and was impressed with how the project targets young people in locations of concern to prevent further victims of this horrendous crime through education and working in partnership with the police and other agencies. "
