Learn more about Barnabus

Barnabus, a Manchester-based Christian charity, has been providing support to the homeless for 25 years. Their mission is to offer a lifeline to vulnerable individuals, providing them with hope and opportunities to transform their lives. The charity's primary objective is to alleviate poverty and empower individuals to rebuild their lives sustainably. They operate a drop-in center that offers a variety of services, including showers, hot meals, and a range of activities. Additionally, the center has a Health and Wellbeing Suite, which is staffed by volunteer nurses and paramedics from the ONHS.

How they support: Helping those who are most vulnerable

The charity operates a support office that provides assistance with accommodation, benefits, training, and support for reintegration into the workforce. Additionally, the charity's collaborative Allotment and ReNu Up-cycling furniture projects offer engaging activities and teach valuable employable skills. Furthermore, a mentoring service for prisoners nearing release is conducted at HMP Manchester and HMP Buckley Hall, with the aim of reducing the likelihood of ex-prisoners re-offending. It is important to note that the charity is not funded by the government and, therefore, relies on the generosity of individuals and local businesses for support.
