Developing Young People & Communities

Nurturing Foundations is based in Harpurhey, North Manchester, a challenging area which is ranked as the 2nd worst ward in England for the effect of long-term deprivation on children and families. Many have suffered adverse childhood experiences and most have very limited aspirations.

We have a vision for the future where individuals especially young people in North Manchester have aspirations, resilience and skills to flourish in the Manchester economy and the confidence to play an active role in civic life.

Are you between the ages of 10 and 20? Do you want to invest in good foundations for your future? Let Nurturing Foundations help you along the way.

What we do

Social Saturdays

Our weekly Saturday gatherings. Each session deals with a specific topic or talking point within the theme for the month.


We run short, intensive workshops during the school holidays. These must be registered for in advance. Dates will be shared on our social media pages, otherwise get in touch and we will let you know events coming up and how you can get involved. Presently, we cater to over 30 nationalities in our ever growing training sessions.


Where appropriate, we offer one on one mentoring services. 

Mental Health Support

We have the skills to facilitate positive wellbeing with the ability to spot signs of mental health challenges in young people and guide them to a place of support. Our trainers are trained by MHFA England.

Serving the wider Community

Alongside working with young people, we also use our training and skills to invest in all age workshops and sessions for the elderly.


We meet every Saturday for a Virtual Hangout from 2-3pm, looking at foundation skills for life.

This is open to 10-16-year-olds. To book a place please get in touch.

My children are now more organised and focused, less shy and more ambitious, They are able to plan ahead and communicate better which has greatly boosted their confidence and can-do attitude.

I always look forward to the online sessions at the weekend where I can hang out with other young people because I know there’s always a new skill or knowledge to be acquired. I am developing my focus, academic attainment, positivity and self-determination which has tremendously helped with my social skills and mental health.

I have been a part of this project since 2019 and privileged to speak on topics like “Let’s end hate crime”, Self esteem and Preparing for Excellence. It has been surreal seeing the growth in the leadership skills and confidence of the young people who attend the weekly sessions.
