How you can help

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

Donate items

66% of the people we see sleep rough on the streets in all weathers, with others staying in emergency shelters, hostels or even sofa surfing. Donating food can help us serve hot meals, your unwanted clothes can keep our friends warm and dry, and unused toiletries, underwear and socks can help to make those who sleep rough feel human again.



Fundraising ideas

Swim, cycle, parachute jump, climb a mountain, shave your head, organise an event - the only limit is your imagination! We’ve had people running marathons all over Europe, riding their bikes the length of the country, dressing up as Smurfs and we even had a lady in her mid 80s playing an organ for 14 hours non-stop!



Volunteer for us

Barnabus relies on over 90 volunteers a week to open our doors and welcome people who need a friend. We have volunteers from all over Greater Manchester, as well as Cheshire and Lancashire, all age groups and all walks of life.
