you next?
Have your say in
what Threshold
does and your
involvement
Threshold customers from Oldham, Stockport and Tameside will be getting together on 30th July for a
major event at the New Charter Academy in Ashton-under-Lyne.
The CASE event (which stands for community, advice, support and empowerment), will feature
plenty of activities such as football coaching, facepainting and a samba band. There will be a
big ‘market stall’ with a wide range of advice and support organisations.
Guests will also be invited to have their say on Threshold as an organisation - what we do well, what
we could improve and how cutomers can be more involved in its running. This is a great opportunity,
so don’t miss out!

Threshold will very soon be opening a brand new
project in Manchester aimed at Muslim women
needing emergency accommodation.
The Manchester Shelter is a joint initiative with
the National Zakat Foundation, who provide the
funding for the service. It is located in an empty
home, renovated with a grant from the
Department for Communities and Local
Government.
Those involved in the project are very excited to
see the finishing touches taking place on the
house, after spending many months finding a
suitable property and location for it.
The Manchester Shelter will be home to five
women, taking referrals from Greater Manchester
and beyond. More information coming soon.
The Inspire Women group sold cakes and held
several other activities to raise money for the
Oldham refuge on 5th July. Here’s what they did:
