Methodist Action (North West) Ltd. strives to assist those less fortunate than ourselves to achieve independence and fulfilment. We provide a wide range of professional services across the North West of England and are dedicated to helping people to help themselves.
We believe everyone deserves a chance.
Methodist Action (North West) Ltd. is a registered charity, working in close partnership with the Methodist Church, other denominations and faith groups and Local Authorities. Our goal is to give people the confidence, the skills and the knowledge they need to become independent.
The Board of Directors of Methodist Action (North West) Ltd. undertook a consultation exercise in 2014 to enable partners, sponsors, service users, volunteers and staff to comment on the proposed priorities of the charity over the three-year period commencing September 2014. The outcome of the exercise was a document called A Vision for Methodist Action North West Ltd.
