We create opportunities for people to help themselves through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work, improvements to health and wellbeing plus new experiences to encourage aspiration.
Featured Life Story
“I don’t ever need to be unhappy, because when I come to Mustard Tree, they make me happy.” Norma first came to Mustard Tree after losing her father. She was struggling with anxiety, depression and was finding looking for work impossible as she couldn’t read or write. Since joining, she is now finding her feet again and her confidence by taking on so many new opportunities. Norma has now started volunteering as activities coordinator at a Salford nursing home.
