“To change the conversation, we have to change who is part of it”


In March 2020 People’s Powerhouse went to Redcar and Cleveland, with the sole aim of hearing from people who are often not heard. We listened to people in Dormanstown, South Bank, Eston and Loftus; all communities that surround Middlesbrough, and sit within the boundaries of Redcar and Cleveland local authority.

Celebrating 100 years of Social Action

On Monday 22nd July 2019 we marked 100 years (to the day) of the formation of Manchester and Salford Council of Social Service. Macc, Salford CVS and Gaddum worked together to mark the occasion with a celebratory event at the People’s History Museum.
