Cheshire Streetwise CIC are a local community based initiative involved with providing practical support to marginalised people within a rough 10 mile radius of Macclesfield and surrounding villages.
We offer a range of activities and services to help people in the local area, we are truly a local 'not for profit operation 'powered' by volunteers. Everything we do goes back into your community.
Many of the people who engage with us have been or are Homeless, struggling to make ends meet, or are recently housed but with no additional support.
