Who We Are
For over 20 years Mustard Tree has been a Greater Manchester based charity committed to providing life support for the homeless and marginalised. We support communities where ‘poverty and disadvantage remain a key challenge’ and where ‘levels of unemployment and economic inactivity are amongst the highest nationally’ (Manchester Poverty Commission, 2013). For those facing homelessness and the greatest disadvantage, we seek to open doors to a better future.
