Our Impact

Manchester Young Lives has been making a positive impact to both individual young people and the wider communities they live in since 1970. Our impact is best exemplified by the fact that we remain one of the leading voices in both play and youth work in Manchester almost 50 years after our first playground was established.

We are constantly measuring our impact to inform the continuous improvement we strive for in the provision we are delivering. The data below shows the headline figures for the organisation over the last year, but statistics only give part of the story. Read our case studies to see the personal impact we have on the young people we work with.
