The Galaxy, ‘the space to be’ help teenage girls and young people build confidence, self-expression, mental well-being, and social skills. They provide advice and direction to help young people make life decisions and choose career paths.

Based in North Manchester, they run a wide range of after-school activities, including aerobics, aqua aerobics, netball, social trips, educational and holiday programmes, and a drama group which culminates in an annual showcase for the young people to demonstrate their talents and skills.

Young people engage because the activities they are joining are of interest to them, or because their friends have joined up. Others attend with the goal of making new friends, especially from other schools.

The Galaxy has been shortlisted for the Transforming Lives Award to be presented at Forever Manchester’s Birthday Party on Friday 10th February 2023.

The award is given in recognition of a group of local people who, through the work they do, have helped transform the lives of others.
