Families of the World

Families of the World is a project for young families seeking sanctuary in Manchester, and is generously funded by the Oglesby Charitable Trust.

This project is rooted in: the spirit of welcome; a focus on refugee children and families; improved access and inclusion to cultural and civic spaces; a trauma-informed dimension to cultural activity;  cross cultural learning and sharing including food.

We aim to extend a positive message to our visitors around making Manchester a place where refugees and asylum seekers can live safely. Where they can continue to make a valuable contribution within inclusive and resilient communities.
