A WORTHWHILE CAUSE
Manchester Youth Zone is located in Harpurhey, the 2nd worst ward in England for the effect of long term deprivation on children, just outside Manchester city centre. Many in the surrounding area are vulnerable to poor educational attainment, future worklessness and to developing antisocial or offending behaviour.
