Wood Street Mission

Wood Street Mission is a registered children's charity based in the centre of Manchester.  We help children and families living in Manchester and Salford with everyday items most of us take for granted. All the families we support are affected by poverty.

Wood Street's mission is to help alleviate the effects of poverty on local children and their families through practical help.  Wood Street's vision is that all children in Manchester and Salford should live a life free from poverty.  Wood Street Mission is committed to help achieve this through offering practical help and services to families and supporting them as they try to lift themselves out of poverty. We encourage them to ensure their children engage in education and develop their learning skills so they may live an independent life in their adulthood.

We are based at 26 Wood Street, Manchester M3 3EF. Registered Children's Charity Number 1078337
We are just off Deansgate in the Spinningfields area of Manchester and adjacent to the John Ryland's Library.

Opening times:
Monday - Friday: 8:30am - 4:30pm
Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays: Closed
