Give Hope This Christmas

Homelessness is devastating at any time of year but at Christmas, when Manchester is full of party goers and people shopping for loved ones, the difference between those that have and those that don’t, is sadly easy to see. We know you want to make a difference so we've come up with some suggestions of how you can bring Joy at this special time of year.

Donate Items

As an essential service we are very much open please support our work with donations of the items we are short of but need to run our service everyday. You can also support us through our amazon wish list or through shopping vouchers.



Fundraising events

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

Volunteer with us

Our wonderful volunteers are the heart of what we do and without them, we couldn’t do the work we do to get people housed. We have volunteers from all over Greater Manchester, as well as Cheshire and Lancashire, all age groups and all walks of life.
