Helping 600 homeless people a week

Barnabus is a Christian homelessness charity and the chosen charity of our Manchester office. The charity started 23 years ago with just one man walking the streets, giving out food and drink to the homeless. It now offers a lifeline to 600 visiting homeless and vulnerable people each week, many of whom have severe addictions or mental health issues.

The charity’s Beacon Centre underwent a face lift in 2016 thanks to our staff volunteering grants and a grant from our charitable owner, Allchurches Trust. The shower units at the Centre have been refitted, while an art and craft area and health and wellbeing suite have also been set up. Our teams have used their volunteer days to help out by cooking breakfasts and sorting all the clothing which is received on a daily basis.

Barnabus has many initiatives and events such as the Re-Nu Up-cycling furniture project, an allotment project, street outreach, prison work and a shop. They rely on local businesses for support and we are proud that this year, their 25th anniversary, we are one of their top 25 supporters helping to continue their incredible work.
