BAME projects

Our mental health transformation team  have been working closely with the Greater Manchester VCSE Leadership Group to formulate support offers for a number of BAME communities across Greater Manchester. We will be working with six organisations to provide extensive mental health services for our BAME communities who have been disproportionally impacted by Covid-19. Find out more here
