The Booth Centre is a community centre run with and for people affected by homelessness in Manchester.

We provide a warm welcome, an opportunity to belong, to gain a purpose and to rebuild lives. Our programme includes activities such as volunteering, creative projects and sports, as well as training and help to gain ​employment.

Join this event to hear how the Booth Centre and other agencies responded to the ‘Everyone In’ government directive during the coronavirus pandemic, and despite a full lockdown were still able to support people that were - and still are - homeless in our city.

You can learn how the Booth Centre has redesigned its services to ensure that it is fit for purpose post lockdown, whilst also compliant with the ever-changing government guidelines.

We will be challenging some of the myths around homelessness and related issues and you will be able to ask questions, share concerns and find out how you and or your company can support the Booth Centre in it’s vital work.
