A new exhibition, exploring the 150-year history of the Together Trust, opened this week at Manchester Central Library.
The exhibition, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, tells the changing story of our work to champion and care for people in the region over the last century and a half.
The Together Trust was founded in 1870, by Leonard Shaw and Richard Taylor, to provide shelter for homeless boys in Manchester and Salford. Its first home, the Night Refuge with 12 beds, was on Quay Street, Manchester. In its first 50 years, the charity helped around 124,500 children.
