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 support sleep rough on the streets with others staying in emergency shelters, hostels or sofa surfing. Donating means we can offer a vital lifeline to vulnerable people in need, £ donations enable us to employ support and resettlement workers and keep our services open.



Fundraising events

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

Volunteer with 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.
