The Message Trust

The Message Trust works with the hardest to reach young people in schools, local communities and prisons in Greater Manchester and beyond through the Eden Network.

The trust reaches out to aimless, bored and disaffected young people who are often blamed for anti-social behaviour, vandalism, criminal damage and drug-induced crime.

Through promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ, the trust demonstrates its faith in young people by encouraging and motivating them to live fulfilled and rewarding lives.

Andy Hawthorne OBE, founder and CEO of The Message Trust, says: “Young people may be one of society’s greatest problems but they are also the solution to that problem.”
