Volunteer Programme, Manchester

We are pleased to announce that following a restructure of the Volunteer Programme in Manchester, we are back up and running.

We would like to express our thanks to Manchester City Council, Job Centre Plus, Manchester College and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, all of which have and continue to support our efforts in moving some of the most vulnerable and long-term unemployed people back in to work.

Melanie Logan has been seconded from Manchester College, together with Tony Maunder a second secondee from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. Both Manchester College and GMFRS have been longtime supporters of the programme.

We are currently in the process of recruiting the next group in the programme and they will shortly take up volunteer roles within the Cathedral and at the Cenotaph next to the Town Hall.
