Welcome to YPAC Manchester. YPAC is a Young People’s organisation working with young people and the wider community over the last 10 years in Miles Platting, Ancoats, and Collyhurst. We are inspired by the belief that each young person should be free to realise their potential and purpose in life.
In a discussion about opportunities, potential and achievement within their community one young person responded ‘Well this is Miles Platting, what do you expect?’. This statement challenged us and them to ask the question what exactly do or should we expect if anything?
Despite Miles Platting, Ancoats and Collyhurst being Areas of Multiple Deprivation, we believe that they are communities rich in life and vibrancy, and their young people and adults have the capacity to change the world around them for good. As Youth Workers, we believe that each young person can develop the capacity to engage well with their world and themselves. Our hope as workers is that we can create environments and experiences that help young people develop to achieve their potential.
