SmartStart Manchester & Salford
SmartStart Manchester & Salford is a new million pound initiative aimed at kitting out all local children living in poverty for school so they can grow up to fulfill their potential.
SmartStart Manchester & Salford is a project run by children's charity Wood Street Mission which helps children fit in and achieve at school so they grow up to break the cycle of poverty.
