Manchester has one of the highest rates of child poverty by local authority, with 42% of families struggling to provide what most others take for granted. In an area defined by low educational attainment, unemployment, broken relationships and poor health, Manchester Vineyard long to rewrite the story.
422 has stood empty since 2011. This grand Victorian building is on the busy A6, with a bus stop right outside the front doors. Around 80,000 residents in the local area are able to get to it by foot or bus within 15 minutes, making it highly accessible. Through the restoration of this building Manchester Vineyard hope to work towards reversing the detrimental effects of child poverty and help a hurting community flourish.
