Sister Rita to the Rescue

Observational series following no-nonsense nun Sister Rita and her team at their drop-in centre in one of the poorest parts of Manchester, offering advice and support to those who don't know where else to turn for help. Sister Rita tries to help even more people in her area by tackling loneliness, but her attempts to start a friendship club for residents don't get off to the best start. Never one to give up, the nun hatches a plan to bring the locals together, and as she's reminded of the importance of community, she retraces her own roots, revisiting the family and places she grew up with. Meanwhile, as the team finds solutions for people needing advice and support, there's help for one of the food bank regulars when the true extent of his problems is revealed.
