Lots of our programmes have been celebrating the season with those that have taken part in some Christmas fun over the last few weeks.

Tameside care leavers took part in a group cooking session to cook a Christmas Dinner. This is after the group have been learning lots of different recipe and meals, so for the final session Susie held a Christmas dinner to celebrate!

One young person says: “My favourite part was the roasties.”

A supporting member of staff from the Tameside leaving care group said “this is the best meal we’ve made yet.”

The Be Well group wrapped up the year on a high note with their music session to celebrate the holidays.

They got into the festive spirit with a Christmas-themed session, diving into different holiday tunes!

Take a look at this merry moment captured during the musical celebration below:

The Salford care experienced 10-16’s celebrated 2023 with wreath making, a pizza party and winter cinema screening at GRUB Manchester.

It was the perfect way to end the year and we’re already looking forward to being back in 2024 with lots more exciting projects to come!
