Manchester Young Lives
Play & Youth
Our roots lie in the co-operation of local people and communities coming together to create their own opportunities through adventure play. Our facilities are among the most unique in the Manchester, which enables us to work with over 4,000 young people in our city each year.
We consistently challenge issues such as social exclusion and disaffection through our work in centres, in our established independent school, and at street level through our detached work.
Through our encouragement of positive learning experiences, the majority of our young people make a successful transition to further learning, training and employment. We work with young people between ages 5 and 24, striving to improve opportunities for young people living increasingly complex lives.
Our website will help you find out what we do and where we’ve come from, what the future holds and, most importantly, how you can be a part of it.
We are constantly looking to grow and improve MYL so we can enable more young people to have successful lives. Through making a donation, fundraising or volunteering, you can help us to support young people in communities and secure their future.
Manchester Young Lives works to promote the social and educational inclusion of children and young people. We believe everyone can improve their life chances through learning and make a successful transition to adult life given the right opportunities, support and guidance.
Opportunity for all
Diversity, which is celebrated and desired
Respect for those we are working with
Integrity in our actions
Compassion for those less fortunate
Across our sites we provide climbing walls, zip-wires, swings and obstacle courses that encourage active and fulfilling adventure play. Alongside these, our modern sports facilities and pitches allow for development in sport, and our indoor facilities provide leisure activities and arts & crafts, for when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
