Free football sessions for new and expecting fathers

Are you a new or expecting father? Do you fancy getting involved with football at a social level and meeting up with others that are in a similar position?
This takes place at Ten Acres Lane Sports Complex, Newton Heath, Manchester, M40 2SP. It’s free and weekly every Monday, 7-9pm.
There is also the same provision in North Manchester, Co-Op Academy, North Manchester – access via Charlestown Road. Every Thursday, 5:30-7:30pm.

From Monday, you can drop in to use our computers

Hi Everyone,

From next week, Monday 17 May you will once again be able to drop into our Newton Heath and Collyhurst Centres to use our computers!

Currently, you are only able to book a face to face appointment with a yes advisor.  However, we have listened to you and realise that some of you need access to a computer with internet and a printer, to complete some important tasks such as : 

  • Log in or create a Universal Credit account
  • Complete online job applications
  • Access emails to print off important ID documents for College, University or Work
  • Upload your CV to job search websites and job applications
  • Revise for tests e.g. CSCS\PTS​​

For now, there’ll be only a small number of computers available for clients to use independently without any need of advisor support.  So, it will be on a first come first served basis. Should you need to use a computer but need advisor support then please continue to book a face to face appointment instead.  

Please contact us if you need any further information: call 0161 720 4090 or email us at
