Insight supporting Mustard Tree
If you take a walk through the city centre of Manchester, it isn’t hard to notice how extreme the issue of poverty and homelessness has become of late. Being based in the city centre we are becoming more aware everyday how overwhelming an issue this is. We decided, as a local business, it is our duty to give back in any way we can to support our neighbours in need.
Insight are very honoured to announce that we have recently appointed Mustard Tree as our nominated charity.
The Mustard Tree Charity helps support those who are trapped in poverty or homelessness in Manchester and Greater Manchester. 600,000 people in Greater Manchester are in poverty, 91,000 of them are children and 137,000 people are in-work poverty. The Mustard Tree focus on tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty by providing the provisions and support needed to allow those in poverty to gain the skills and self-confidence required to reach their full potential.
We very much looking forward to working closely with the team at Mustard Tree and supporting them in their mission. Insight will be looking to support not only financially but will give our time to support those taking part in the “Freedom Project” by working with The Mustard Tree to provide CV writing workshops, mock interviews and general tips and advice to help participants on their transition back into work.
