Apologies – we had some technical issues during this meeting. 

How to help rough sleepers

If you have immediate concerns for the welfare of a rough sleeper you can call 999 or 101 and the police will take the appropriate action.

You can also report to  roughsleeperteam@manchester.gov.uk

See the drop-in care and charity services across the city centre.

Street Support

The Street Support app is the online tool that sets out ways people can help the homeless in Manchester.

People can find local services to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness and give help as a citizen or business.

Big Change MCR

Big Change MCR is Manchester’s campaign to share ways the public can help the homeless and rough sleepers in Manchester. Instead of direct donations on the street, the Big Change fund is about helping individuals build lives away from the streets by offering practical services, items and money to pay for things that are needed. For example a deposit for a home, training course or travel costs.
