The Barnabas Wellbeing Project

·        The Diocese of Manchester gave our Community Project an award in its new Churches for a Different World scheme. Only 16 Churches received an award; and we received the top category of ‘highly commended’.

·        All Oldham Police cadets visit our Community Centre as part of their induction training.

·        From the statutory sector, the Probation Service gives details of our food bank to all newly released clients.

·        Oldham Police, the Probation Service, Oldham Food Bank, First Choice Homes Oldham, and other local Churches all send clients to us for emergency help with food, clothing, companionship, or advice.
