That’s right! We are moving. MAV our moving across the road to the Claremont Resource Centre, Rolls Crescent, Hulme, Manchester M15 5FS. MAV move in April 2012. We have had a wonderful 4 years at Old Birley Street and will miss the staff from Work for Change. MAV will still be close and accessible to all our local community. The service is making changes that will enhance the support we provide in the future. MAV like so many services are seeking to save money. MAV will move into one of Manchester City Council (MCC) vacant office spaces. The move will help MCC cover some of the cost for office buildings and will also save MAV money and allow us to spend more on the delivery of projects. Sadly MAV have also had to cut the cost of funding the Outreach Van. This has been very painful, the van has supported the delivery of the MAV Substance Misuse Service for 8 months. Many people with substance misuse issues have received much needed support and understanding from our service.
MAV are sure the Outreach Van will be replaced in the future. Change is inevitable and sometimes painful. We are hoping to secure funding in 2012, we are also raising funds. The Executive Committee and MAV volunteers are working to promote the work we do and develop projects that will continue to support our community. Gun crime has been reduced in our local community. MAV refuse to be complacent we believe prevention is better than cure, we will continue to work with young people and their families.
MAV are hopeful for the future. We want to continue doing the work we do supporting local schools, youth offending services, prisons, substance misuse services and providing counselling and mentoring. Please kindly make a donation.

MAV Supporting & Working in Collaboration with our Community
The Inspire Church Youth Group has already engaged over 20 young people in the last 3 months and has brought together young people from all backgrounds. There is a growing Romanian community in Levenshulme and the youth group includes many young people from this community. This has been a positive step forward and has allowed young people to develop more positive relationships with this often marginalized community group. Inspire Church Youth Group is currently running on Sunday Evenings from 6pm – 7.30pm. Please contact MAV’s ACCESS Project for more information. Contact details below.
