Giving a hand up, not a hand out.

At Forever Manchester, we believe in fostering a strong and inclusive community across Greater Manchester. That’s why we’re proud to support incredible organisations like Fair Futures CIC, who are making a real difference in the lives of Ukrainian refugees arriving in Bury.

Your generous donations have helped Fair Futures provide vital educational and social opportunities. These programmes create a welcoming space where families can build new connections and rebuild their lives.

One inspiring story exemplifies the power of your support. A young woman arrived at 16 with limited English, facing a future filled with uncertainty. But thanks to Fair Futures’ social clubs, summer programs, and English classes, she found a supportive network and a path forward.

Her dedication and the personalised support offered by Fair Futures paid off in a big way. This summer, she proudly achieved her GCSEs, including English, Maths, Science, and even Russian! Fair Futures further empowered her by assisting with her college application, securing her a well-deserved spot in her chosen program.

But her story doesn’t end there. Today, she’s a volunteer translator for Fair Futures, confidently using her Ukrainian and newly acquired English skills. This transformation is a testament to the impact Fair Futures has on these families, and it wouldn’t be possible without your support.

Together, we’re making a difference in Greater Manchester.
