We regularly run free classes in English, Maths, Computing, Employability, Well-being, subject to eligibility criteria of grants and funding.

We are also offering Community Well-Being Activities funded by “We Love Manchester Emergency” Fund. Offering the followings please join classes by contacting our office.

  1. Light Exercising and Well Being – these are offered on zoom by sessional work who has delivered this before. This will allow participants learning new ways of improving their positive thinking/mindfulness but also improve their physical health by taking part in the exercise.
  2. Multicultural Cooking. To learn practical skills and share ideas and learning from each other and bring the community spirit back to the centre of feel cohesive.
  3. Cake Making and Decorations – this course again would make participants amused and being socially involved and be keen to take part while using technology.

We are seeking funding to offer more Health & Well-Being courses From August and September for BME community(subject to funding and grants).

Funding and Grants
In the past, we have received funding from a variety of sources including Manchester City Council, Awards for All, FE Colleges, the European Social Fund, the WEA, the European Integration Fund as well as the private sector and VCO bodies. As a UK Online Centre, we have delivered funding to promote digital skills in the community.

We can offer courses for BME communities that will help them to be active, healthier, learn new skills, engage with volunteering and digital skills.

We are very keen to support BME to learn about digital entrepreneurial skills; start their own business or economically move into employment.

Volunteering at Community Revival
Ever wanted to experience what it would be like to teach in a classroom? What about clerical work in an office? A receptionist? Maintaining a computer system? Managing a project? Research? Sales, marketing and PR? Or perhaps Bookkeeping and accounts? If so, then Community Revival is a great place to volunteer! Just get in touch with us to find out how you can get involved.

We engage with literally hundreds of people every year which provides an excellent opportunity to survey individuals and gather all manner of valuable data regarding their needs, wants and aspirations. This information can then be used to provide the most appropriate provision and services to the community.

COVID 19 response:

  • online courses in ESOL
  • online courses for health and well being
  • developing partnership with other VCS organisations to build activities and community projects
  • our management is keen to engage with BME communities; Asylumseeker, unemployed or on low wages and Refugees, in an appropriate way to provide support. This is mostly done at present as online.
