ADVOCATE: CHRISTIE SPURLING MBE
N-Gage is a Manchester based charity that gives young people at risk of educational or social exclusion opportunities and skills to achieve their full potential.
Working in partnership with schools, Greater Manchester Police, Manchester City Council and other partners we provide highly successful, flexible and targeted approaches to anti-social behaviour and educational exclusion.
The charity was founded by Christie Spurling MBE in 2006 in response to his own experiences of educational exclusion.
CATALYST YOUTH WORK
We believe that young people are valuable and incredible at bringing about change, so our mission is to help young people to reach their full potential in their community.
As well as our youth centre in Burnage, we have two mobile youth vehicles that travel around various Manchester communities equipped with a wide variety of resources designed to help young people engage in positive activities and further fulfil their needs.
If your child uses one of our services then join the Catalyst Youth Facebook group to keep up with info!
ELEVATE SCHOOLS WORK
We’ve been working in and with schools since we first started. Getting alongside students who are disengaged from education and are at risk of exclusion is at the heart of what we do.
If you would like us to come into your school then please fill in our booking form below.

PUTTING THE UNITY IN COMMUNITY
The N-Gage Community Café opened in 2019, located inside our Catalyst Youth Centre.
We are open every Monday and Wednesday from 9:00am to 1:00pm and provide a range of delicious and affordable teas, coffees and snacks.
Our Community Café offers a comfortable place for the people of Burnage and beyond to relax, talk and eat, all without breaking the bank!
The aim over the next year is to develop activities and workshops within our café, which will benefit all from elderly to the young. All ideas and requests are welcome.
