Irish Community Care is a voluntary organisation which was founded in 1985 by members of the Manchester Irish Community. The organisation has evolved from its humble beginnings, based in St Lawrence’s Presbytery sharing the Church telephone, to its current position of 2 offices employing 12 staff and facilitating over 70 volunteers.

A Management Committee, representative of Manchester’s Irish Community, steer the development and finances of the organisation.

Work takes place across the city of Manchester and surrounding districts as projects respond to a changing social, political and economic climate. Irish Community Care provides an accessible service to Manchester Irish and the wider community.

Irish Community Care is funded by Emigrant Support Programme (Irish Government), Manchester Social Services, Department of Education and Science, Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales and the Manchester Irish Community.

A great step forward in 2002 was the redevelopment of 893 Stockport Road, Levenshulme, which we signed a lease for in July 2002. An eagle–eyed volunteer spotted the ‘To Let’ sign on the building and brought it to the attention of the Management Committee.

Irish Community Care has to rely on kind donations and fundraising to maintain the Levenshulme office.
