What we do

We provide short-term accommodation and support for people who are facing significant challenges and barriers to securing a stable place to live. We help them to tackle the root causes of the issues affecting their lives, while also helping to develop their confidence and skills to move on to independent living.

The accommodation we provide includes a mix of one bedroom dispersed, shared and self-contained units located across Manchester city.

  • Help accessing sustainable accommodation
  • Learning skills in budgeting, paying bills, managing debt and dealing with paperwork
  • Support accessing employment, training, education, voluntary work and help to pursue personal interests.                    
  • Signposting to specialist services (including substance misuse, mental health or domestic violence services)
