Why Is It Needed?

Homelessness across the UK and Greater Manchester is rising since the pandemic. Across Greater Manchester alone, an estimated over 5,500 people are homeless, a number which has dramatically increased over the past five years. With the end of furlough, the end of the government ban on evictions, the end of the Everyone In scheme and also some of the original shelters closing down because they didn’t survive the pandemic, the city is braced but very ill prepared for what is about to unfold in terms of new people in desperate need.

It is not unusual for single homeless people to have no other option than to live several years in shelters before local authority housing becomes available. Our aim is to reintegrate homeless men into the work force and private sector housing without the need to rely on benefits. This isn’t just about saving society money – it’s about improving the self-esteem and life chances of men who have longed to get on their feet and contribute to society again. The Embassy Village has the potential to become a major force for good in our city’s fight to tackle the number of people and time spent needlessly on the streets.

N fled conflict in Darfur 10 years ago walking most of the way from Africa to Manchester. After waiting 7 years in a shelter, we met N and took him in. The pandemic slowed our progress but even so we found jobs for him. Each time he lost them and finally we established that he couldn't read or write in English. N has completed a college course, reads & writes and speaks much better. We have helped secure employment with our partners DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Piccadilly and last week, with furniture from our friends at LOFT we moved him into his new flat. What a decade! We are humbled to witness the happy ending to this hard chapter. We continue to provide him with support - here’s to the future! ... See MoreSee Less
