Challenge 4 Change

Established in 2008, Challenge4Change is an indoor, experiential learning facility based in Trafford Park. The vision of the charity is to provide innovative and motivational learning and development opportunities that enable learners to overcome any barriers that currently hold them back. The activities aim to help people build confidence, develop the skills to work in a team and most importantly make them realise that they are in charge of their success in life – no one else. The charity works with everyone, from school groups to support their learning, to veterans who may be suffering with PTSD, and young offenders using their ‘teams not gangs’ project which is delivered using a purpose built jail! Anyone who uses the facility never forgets it and leaves with a far greater ability to face life’s challenges, whoever they are and whatever their circumstances.

 

MedEquip4Kids

MedEquip4Kids is a local children’s charity helping provide medical equipment for NHS Trusts, clinics and community hospitals. The charity buys equipment which is considered to be beneficial for the care of children, but which the NHS cannot afford under its budget constraints. As one example, the charity has recently helped open a ‘Teen Zone’ with televisions, games consoles and other activities at the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Trust to help long-term patients to socialise and encourage their friends to come and visit. This helps improve their attitudes to medical care and prevent them feeling alienated from care teams. MedEquip4Kids was started in 1985 and has grown massively since, raising over £20 million to help make the care experience that little bit easier for over 109,000 children each year.
