This project works in 4 different boroughs of Greater Manchester and aims to provide good quailty training and faccilities to the young men that attend. As well as the coaching, the project links in with other services to try and meet the needs that arise as they get to know the participants. These are services such as, housing, education, training and employment services. The staff and volunteers also act as mentors for the men helping them to deal with the number of emotional diffuculties that they faceduring and after the sessions due to their lifestyles and backgrounds. We need finances to cover the running costs, and to provide the best kit and equipment to this marginalised section of society.
