According to Greater Together Manchester, the homelessness crisis is most obvious in Manchester City Centre, with people sleeping in doorways and under flyovers is a regular sight. Homelessness in Manchester City Centre has dramatically increased over the past 5 years. There are more people accessing the support offered by day services such as the Booth Centre, Mustard Tree and Cornerstone. There are also many people accessing additional outreach projects such as Coffee4Craig.
This is why we were delighted when we were commissioned to design a map of the city with useful resources for anyone in this situation.
In the map we highlight where rough sleepers can find shelter, showers, food, laundry facilities, toiletries and medical resources.
We are really proud to have been part of this project and incentivise you to find out more about what you can do to help the rough sleepers of Manchester.
