Adult Education Budget - Manchester

Coronavirus (Covid-19) important update

Our Adult Education Budget programme in Manchester will continue to operate. 

In line with government guidance, we have reopened a number of sites for face-to-face delivery, which are fully COVID safety compliant and have been inspected by health and safety professionals. 

Please only visit if you have a confirmed appointment with your point of contact. They will share important information with you before your face-to-face meeting, including safety measures and face-covering requirements.

Most of our support continues to be delivered via phone, video, and email. Face-to-face delivery remains limited at this time to allow for social distancing and to keep our colleagues and service users safe. If you have any questions, please speak to your point of contact. Alternatively, phone the branch or office as normal.
