Why your help is needed

Rough sleeping in Manchester has more than tripled in the last five years. With nowhere else to go this Christmas, many young people could be sleeping on a stranger’s sofa, staying in a filthy squat or sleeping rough on the street many being at risk of exploitation. By sponsoring a room for just 40p a day, you can help give a young person a place; somewhere safe to sleep. A place where they can start their future.

Help save lives and change lives today

Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive – and your room will be much more than just a roof over a young person’s head. It's a safe haven, where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
