MRCT


As a Christian-based charity MRCT's aims and objectives are to develop voluntary work and social opportunities for people who are often perceived as being disadvantaged, either through a disability or social difficulty.

Our key aim is the inclusion of all people, irrespective of social status, ability, disability, age, ethnic grouping or religious belief.  It is all too easy to write off someone because they may not seem to be socially acceptable or fit into the general perception of how someone should look or act, but everyone has a part to play in their local community.
