After school club delivered by Manchester Met Student Ambassadors in local libraries in Greater Manchester
Homework Club was designed to respond to the needs of areas in Manchester that experiences the highest proportion of income deprivation. Areas of such high levels of income deprivation are recognised to have issues with literacy levels amongst its school age children.
