On 19th January 2016, a Community Grant of £1000 was given to Outreach by the Grant Making Committee of the ELMC at their Manchester offices at St. Chads Road in Cheetham Hill, Manchester.

Outreach have been providing a range of support services to adults with a learning disability and/or long term mental health needs for 35 years. Originally formed as a service to disabled young people from the Jewish community, they now provide long term and personalised residential and domiciliary services to all denominations and sections of the community.

The grant will be used for IT equipment to further a pilot scheme using tablets, laptops and raspberries.
