Our Aims

The Board of Directors of Methodist Action (North West) Ltd. undertook a consultation exercise in 2014 to enable partners, sponsors, service users, volunteers and staff to comment on the proposed priorities of the charity over the three-year period commencing September 2014. The outcome of the exercise was a document called A Vision for Methodist Action North West Ltd.
