Inspiring day volunteering

WELLACRE 6th Form students spent an Inspiring day volunteering at Mustard Tree, a charity to help the homeless and marginalised.

‘Since 1994, Mustard Tree has transformed the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are trapped in poverty or homelessness, by enabling them to gain the skills and self confidence they need to reach their full potential.’

During their time at Mustard Tree our students gained experience of the ways in which charities are run, funded and operated on a daily basis, gaining a better understanding of the wider implications of becoming or dealing with homelessness. They were also able to give something back to their community and hopefully making a difference to the people around the.

Since their return our students have been encouraged to look further into Charities & Non Profit Organisations and linking this to their Business and Enterprise studies.
