COPPERDALE TRUST 

Copperdale provides a home for homeless young people aged between 15 - 24, providing 24 hour a day support and aims to empower marginalised young people to gain better life chances. An additional project, The United Estates of Wythenshawe, provides an alternative community centre which is open to all ages including young people who are at risk of becoming involved in gangs and poor life choices.
