“To work in partnership with others to create a sustainable resource which improves the health and well being for people in Wythenshawe and increases their ability to participate in the wider community”

The Tree of Life Centre is an organisation which operates in the Wythenshawe area of South Manchester.  We provide many valuable services to the local community, from health and wellbeing sessions, advice and friendship groups to providing an opportunity for local people to get involved, train for qualifications and get valuable experience by volunteering with us. But the Tree of Life Centre is probably best known for its furniture re-use shop, which is renowned in the Wythenshawe area for the good quality stock and low, affordable prices, giving people on pensions, benefits and low incomes the possibility of being able to buy the things they need that they couldn’t otherwise afford, whilst encouraging re-use, recycling and the reduction of good quality items that end up in landfill.

Also famous in Wythenshawe is our community café which, true to our ethos, provides a good meal and a hot drink, along with a warm, welcoming atmosphere from £2.95. It’s a great place people to get out and make friends, take family or just get out of the house and eat out, at an affordable cost that makes it a great option for those on low and supported incomes. We welcome people from the whole spectrum of the local community regardless of age, race, disability or background and actively promote inclusion and participation in our community.

We also have a computer room which is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm and you can drop in any time in those hours. Here you are welcome to come in and use our computers for a variety of tasks such as:

  • Online Jobsearching
  • Filling out online application forms
  • Checking emails
  • Printing documents

If you're new to computers then don't worry! Computer lessons are also available. We can get you taking those first steps to become computer literate and also help you setup your very own email address.
