Ancoats, Ardwick, Baguley, Benchill, Beswick, Blackley, Bradford, Burnage, Charlestown, Cheetham, Chorlton, City Centre, Clayton, Collyhurst, Crumpsall, Didsbury, Fallowfield, Gorton, Harpurhey, Hulme, Levenshulme, Longsight, Miles Platting, Moss Nook, Moss Side, Moston, Newall Green, Newton Heath, Northenden, Northern Moor, Openshaw, Peel Hall, Rusholme, Sharston, Whalley Range, Withington, Woodhouse Park, Wythenshawe.
The services continue the project we delivered in partnership with Europia, a charity based in Manchester.
We are concerned that Polish people face many barriers in accessing specialist services – language barrier, fear from statutory agencies, lack of knowledge of the system, isolation and financial difficulties. Our project was a response to the needs of the Polish victims/survivors of domestic abuse in Manchester.
