How you can help

To enable us to continue our lifesaving work on the streets of Manchester we need your support...

Donate Items

During this Covid 19 crisis we've cooked and delivered 40,000 meals to rough sleepers in emergency accommodation so that they could self isolate and keep safe, while ensuring they have essential supplies and food. We are also out on early morning outreach to support rough sleepers who may be new due to this crisis or mentally unable to cope with being indoors.



Fundraising events

Swim, cycle, parachute jump, climb a mountain, shave your head, organise an event - the only limit is your imagination!
