The St Johns 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.
