Welcome To Community Living in Manchester

The JC foundation trust aims to provide access to public services, housing, health and employement for all and a platform for the local community to enhance community cohesion and wellbeing and a give a social voice when it comes to the important issues such as disability, antisemitism, discrimination, social justice and ethics.

We are based in Broughton, an ethnically/religiously diverse ward in Salford, Manchester. This diversity has created a vibrant community, where ethnic and religious groups live separately, rarely engaging with each other. And, our work is targeted towards supporting this diverse, but vulnerable community.


Disability

Disabilities can take many forms and shapes: they can be Physical or Mental, seen or hidden, limiting or tolerable. One aspect that is important though for all of us, is the right to function in society as an individual, although people may have differing abilities in practice.

We at the JC Foundation Trust make sure there will be no unwanted obstacles for you (legal, social or legislative) that will impede members of the community from going about their daily or accessing public services lives simply because of their condition.

Antisemitism & Racism

Antisemitism is an enduring disease that has persisted through the centuries via numerous mutations and social aberrations; it can take on many shapes and forms: it is an overt and covert form of Racism, that may be literal and implied or may lay dormant for a whole generation before reappearing suddenly in unexpected places and situations. All of us want to function in a society without fear or prejudice or hindrance.

So we, at the JC Foundation Trust do make sure there are no unwanted obstacles for you in this regard whether: legal, social or legislative by working in conjunction with all the relevant stakeholders in our community and beyond to ensure fair and equal access to all opportuinities.

Ethics & Justice

What we have found at the JC Foundation Trust ,when confronting issues such as Antisemitism and Prejudice, is that at the root cause of this problem , there is a fairness and ethical deficit that needs addressing in most cases, in order to alleviate the negative consequences and begin to eradicate this discrimination in the longer term; so we at the JC Foundation Trust are not afraid to ask the difficult questions from the stakeholders (Council, Health Services, Education.....) and challenge existing assumptions.

We will advocate on your behalf, we will Investigate and conduct the necessary research, offer the right solutions including PR campaigns, crisis management and events, we will coach, facilitate and raise awareness on your behalf and educate.

Thank you to our amazing supporters and sponsors!

Breast feeding in public places

“This in depth academic commissioned study carried out by the JC FOUNDATION TRUST e Think Tank is of interest to central government, local government, park authorities, equalities in “open and public spaces” access bodies and inclusion advocates.”Jay Charara Msc Org PsychThe Equality Act 2010 states women have the right to feed their babies in public spaces. Unfortunately, the UK still has one of the lowest rates of breast feeding in the world in the 21st century. Why should we find being out with our babies a difficult experience when it comes to finding somewhere to sit and feed them or change them?Why should mothers be subjected to negative remarks if you choose to breast feed in public spaces or feel you are being stared at? Why are many changing facilities in the disabled or women’s toilets? Why don’t they have them in the men’s toilets for those fathers who are out with their babies or children?It is the 21st century and as mums, many have faced negative comments or been made to feel uncomfortable feeding our babies/ children in public spaces? How many of us as parents (mum’s and dad’s) have found it difficult on occasions to find somewhere to change your child when in our local parks and open spaces?Speaking to mums and dads in our local areas, and around the country many have shared similar experiences.The JCFT decided to circulate a survey to parents across different parts of greater Manchester to gain a broad understanding of people’s experiences of breast and bottle feeding and changing their baby/child in public spaces, local parks and play areas in the future.As you can see from the table below a different range of ages completed the survey from various places across the Greater Manchester area.Nicki Davis Report Author.
