About the charity

Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity raises funds to support homelessness initiatives across the city region and give out grants to good causes.

Nobody in our city region should be without a safe, secure place to call home. Yet in this complex and unjust climate, there are many for whom this is simply out of reach. It isn't right. Not anywhere, but certainly not here.

One of the biggest initiatives we support is A Bed Every Night (ABEN) - launched in autumn 2018, ABEN was set up by the Mayor as a humanitarian response to the rough sleeping crisis.. A Bed Every Night is built on the principle that no one should be excluded from support and forced to sleep on the streets, and we fund those who are legally deemed to have ‘No Recourse to Public Funds’ (NRPF). In 2021/22 we funded 21,900 nights’ accommodation and with your support we can continue to fund this innovative and vital initiative.
