Supporting our work

We work in partnership with the council's ‘A Bed Every Night’ programme, which is part of their initiative to end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester.

As part of the programme, we aim to provide breakfast, and a hot meal for residents in the evening. We're a registered charity so we rely on donations,and we're always so grateful for the food surplus we receive to deliver this service, and support people on their pathway to independence. We work in partnership with several other charities and providers, including Barnabus, The Mustard Tree, Connect Manchester, Riverside and Change Grow Live. Local businesses can donate via our Neighbourly page.
