How You Can Help

Donating Goods / Goods in Kind

Please help us by donating items we regularly give out at our Centre. During these cold, wet winter months we are particularly in need of Gloves, Hats, Scarves, Jumpers and Coats. The men and women we see have often been sleeping rough or sleeping in hostels, what we take for granted as every day necessities are unobtainable to them.

We can receive your donations at our Barnabus Support Office: 61 Bloom Street, Manchester M1 3LY, Monday - Friday, 10am - 3pm

If you have a large number of items (more than a car) or you are unable to drop offitems during these times, please email Yvonne admin@barnabusmanchester.co.uk or Tel: 0161 237 3223
