Street Support Network works online and offline, connecting and supporting local people and organisations to Tackle Homelessness.
Our vision is a citizen-led network, where people with personal insight into homelessness, decision makers and people with resources co-create effective solutions together.
This website is a central place online to find out about homelessness, see what support is available, and see what you can do to help.
We also work offline, connecting people to co-produce better solutions, facilitating conversation and co-ordinating action. Everything we do starts by listening to people with personal insight into homelessness and frontline workers. We use research, co-production, human centered design and creative technology to develop tools and improve systems. Here is the story of how this started.
Street Support Network Ltd is a Registered Charity . We have been funded by donations from local philanthropists and friends, small grants, and business sponsorship. In order to continue to develop and support this network, and to provide employment for people experiencing homelessness, we need businesses to partner with us. If you are interested in supporting us, please contact Gary at email@example.com.
We have a core team of 6 people based in Manchester, 2 of us have lived experience of homelessness. Each location we are active in has a local co-ordinator, supported by organisations and volunteers.About our team

We work in partnership with people experiencing homelessess, charities and voluntary groups, public and private sector, and concerned citizens. Together we co-produce new features to meet different needs, and are continually improving the site based on user feedback. In addition to providing the online network, we also work behind the scenes to connect people and facilitate collaborative workshops.About Manchester Homelessness Partnership
