We launched at the Reebok Stadium in September 2004. We had a dream to see crime rates dropping and communities thriving across Greater Manchester.
But the vision grew, and we launched nationally at the NEC in Birmingham in 2006 with 7000 people attending the national launch as part of the Trumpet Call event.
Projects and partnerships started developing around the UK.
In 2012 our work was recognised when Debra received an OBE for services to community cohesion.
In 2014 we moved into The FUSE, a £5 million state of the art conference and community centre which was given to us on a 22-year rent-free lease.
In 2017 we received the Queen’s Award for voluntary service.
Today we have over 800 volunteers working in 200 projects around the UK serving local communities and meeting social needs.
Yes, this year has been tough but we are grateful for all God has done in the past and believing that good things still await us.
