Education and Training is the key to self-improvement, a better family life and finding work. Wai Yin Society is proud of its record as a community provider.
We operate from our own dedicated Learning Centre in Manchester City Centre (M2) and also in schools and community centres across Manchester. Over 500 people attend classes each year. We specialize in providing services to BME communities, and work in partnership with schools and community groups including the Somali Women’s Forum in Moss Side, and The Women’s Education Group at Cheetham Community School.
