Back on Track is a Manchester charity that enables disadvantaged adults to make lasting, positive changes in their lives. We work with people who are going through a process of recovery or rehabilitation, having been through problems with alcohol or drugs, offending, homelessness and mental health. Our learning centre in central Manchester offers a range of support and activities including training courses, one to one guidance and work experience.


On 15th October our own CEO Siobhan is sleeping out to raise crucial funds to tackle the homelessness crisis in Manchester. Show your support by sponsoring her today.
