What we do
Working with businesses, people and communities, we bring Greater Manchester together to raise essential funds.
We have three key priority areas in which our work is focussed:
We are a founding funder of the flagship 'A Bed Every Night' programme and have always played our part in Greater Manchester's frontline response. A Bed Every Night which provides a safety net for some of the most vulnerable in our community and the scheme provides both emergency beds and vital personal support.
A Bed Every Night is built on the principle that no one should be excluded from support and forced to sleep on the streets, and we fund those who are legally deemed to have ‘No Recourse to Public Funds’ (NRPF).
Since 2018 we have funded over 40,000 nights accommodation for those who would otherwise have been sleeping on our streets.
Places & Spaces
We are supporting the construction of new spaces and helping the temporary accommodation sector.
We are a partner' in the new Embassy Village project which is creating a new community that will provide much needed wrap-around support for vulnerable men experiencing homelessness. Read more about the village.
It is fundamental that we act now to prevent homelessness in the future. We're developing pioneering new pilots that seek to stop homelessness before it becomes a reality.
We are pleased to be taking part in a ground-breaking programme which will test out an intervention to support people impacted by or at risk of homelessness. Read more about the direct cash transfers programme.
We are also working with the Greater Manchester Homelessness Action Network (GMHAN), funding a vital new role to aid capacity. This post will help to increase impact, voice and influence, including platforming those with lived experience.
