Story

Nobody should have to be homeless in Manchester.

The St. John's Homelessness Initiative is a joint commitment from all organisations involved in the development to contribute towards ending homelessness through; awareness-raising, inclusive employment, and fundraising.

This is a pioneering project which has created a meaningful and sustainable model of collaboration between developers, contractors, supply chain organisations, the city Council and local charities. As far as we are aware, this is the largest single commitment from these industries towards the reduction of homelessness in the UK and we hope that it will be replicated.

We are working with the Manchester Homelessness Partnership and Big Change MCR to ensure that our efforts and your donations are channelled to where they are most needed. This fund will support potentially hundreds of people who are homeless in Manchester and will prevent more people from becoming homeless.

There is so much talent in the homeless community and we want people to find a job that they want and that they are good at. Tom has a background in marketing and shares his experience of moving into employment after a stint of homelessness:

I sort of slipped into this role. Right place, right time. Supported by the right people. I would have quite happily made butties in Pret and I know the world doesnt owe people favours. Work (pre and post homelessness) has always given me the stability and routine that I need. But I'm guessing this is the same for everyone? Homelessness leaves you with a massive sense of failure, personally and professionally. Employers need to commit to encouragement, it takes a while.

Donate now to help end homelessness in Manchester.

All donations are received and administered by Forever Manchester on behalf of The St. John's Homelessness Initiative.
