Natives of the World is our programme of work for adults from marginalised backgrounds. Through our activities people feel included and part of society.

Our aim is for the adults we work with to access volunteering and creative activities to improve their wellbeing and increase employability skills. ​

Our projects

Wellbeing and mindfulness 

We worked with over 35 women in culturally specific groups to develop mindfulness and wellbeing tools. These resources are available for anyone experiencing difficulties to make use of them in their daily lives.

Cultural food parcels

We support around 57 adults and their families with culturally appropriate food parcels. It cost £25 to support a family for one month. Can you help us give them a taste of home?

Creative culture

Thanks to the Greater Manchester BAME Network we held interactive poetry and drama sessions to create collective poems in French, Urdu, English and Farsi. The results are beautiful verses that reveal the participants cultures, memories, hopes and dreams.
