Mission in the City - A Byte To Eat is a project in Moss Side to encourage socialising and developing new skills

United Care group has been running as a project for many years in the Moss
Side area, where we shared a healthy hot meal, engaged in quizzes and board games.

The project developed over the years to become Mission in the City/United Care group as we included arts and needlecraft and became more inclusive, particularly around
mental health, where we encouraged seniors to come out of their comfort zones
socialise and encourage each other to participate and assist each other in every activity they undertake.


MITC also partnered with the LDET project Active Community Elders (ACE), where we proudly produced a 15-month Black History calendar.

MITC secured funding so that we were able to improve the service we offered by adding the learning of new technology skills, enabling access to the internet, completing and submitting forms, buying online, and contacting loved ones abroad with their newly developed skills. – Adding to the name A Byte 2 Eat.


During the COVID period, MITC worked in partnership with the Louise Da-Cocodia Education Trust ACE project and the West Indian Sports Social Club in the provision and delivery of approximately 180+ meals every week free of cost to elders and vulnerable members of the community
