Are you a volunteer-led group that provides support for people on the streets? We have put together this best practice guide to help you protect the vulnerable adults that use these services, your volunteers and members of the public.
This toolkit makes it easier for you to develop and be recognised for the quality of your service. The information, training and support provided here supports you to ensure you have adequate standards and safeguarding in place.

The mission of the partnership is to end homelessness, and to work together towards the values set out in Manchester Homelessness Charter. People experiencing homelessness have said that they want to maintain their dignity, and most prefer indoor services. Based on this feedback, we recommend street kitchens move inside where possible, and in the meantime avoid populated areas including Picadilly.
Volunteers should signpost people into services that can offer other support. You can see what meals are already being provided through our meals timetable. For full information on all local services available, including drop in centres and advice services, please use our find help section. If you have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch.
If you are in another location, there may still be services listed near you, just select "Another location" (requires location permissions enabled on your device).
If you are in another location and would like to help us bring Street Support to your area, please get in touch.
