three photographs of young people, from the late 1800s through to 2013

We're launching our new initiative in Greater Manchester today. This new way of working will see us joining up different areas of our and others' work to generate the greatest results for children and families. 

Find out more about our new initiative, The Children's Society in Greater Manchester.

In Greater Manchester since 1889

We have supported children and young people in Greater Manchester since 1889. As we launch this new phase of our work in the area, it seemed like a good time to recognise all of the work we've done.

Please have a look at our interactive timeline of our work in Manchester.

To use the timeline:

  • hover your mouse over the sides of the image
  • click the shaded area that appears - it should take you to the next slide
  • you can also use the timeline below the images to jump around in time

(A full-screen version of the timeline is also available.)
