The Beacon Drop-in Centre
For a lot of our homeless friends, the Beacon Drop-in Centre in Manchester is their first experience of Barnabus. For us, the Beacon is a vital space for giving hope and building new relationships.
There’s no appointment needed. Our dedicated staff and volunteers run five morning and four evening sessions a week, where people can make the most of a cooked breakfast or dinner, fresh clothing, healthcare and social activities. It’s also our chance to refer people to our dedicated Support Workers for 1-2-1 support.
How did the Beacon help in 2017-2018
We believe that everybody deserves the opportunity to express themselves. That’s why we run creative, social and educational sessions at the Beacon. Our homeless visitors can choose to get involved in everything from photography workshops to music therapy, or even creative writing sessions.
Our drop in centre is open every weekday between 10:30am till 9pm. Please find details of our activities and services in our timetable.
