Can you help the ‘A Bed Every Night’ campaign?19th Oct 2018
The campaign is a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to tackle the homeless crisis on our streets, with a special pledge to ensure rough sleepers have somewhere warm and safe to go this coming winter.
And it’s more than just a bed. It’s also about the range of support needed to help people begin a journey away from the streets.
We are asking for donations from Business Improvement District businesses who want to make a difference. These items will be used to set up three new purpose-built winter shelters in Greater Manchester.

Pillows, Duvets, Covers, Sheets.
Toilet Roll, Deodorant, Tooth Brushes, Shower Gel, Towels.
