The Olive Community Project is a small charity focused on the needs of Edgeley, Stockport; particularly those who are isolated or excluded, through lack of money, skills, health or access to technology. They offer support through simple, practical means: simply listening, helping people access relevant services or develop basic skills, involving them socially and through volunteering, or offering emergency support.

Charity number 1179539

Thousands of children are going to sleep hungry and cold; without a proper bed of their own.

Zarach is a charity committed to helping children and families who are living in poverty crisis. We are active in schools and in the community. We see the problems that poverty causes every day, we understand that more should be done to help and we have the skills, passion and drive to make an immediate and real difference.

Bed Poverty is a real problem that has a significant effect on a child’s education. By providing something to eat and a good night’s sleep, we can give every child an equal chance to learn and succeed at school.

We are currently the only hub in Greater Manchester. We support all of the Stockport area. We provide beds and bedding to children in need. 

We launched our partnership in January 2023 and to present date we have delivered 178 beds to children in the local area.
