Booth Centre

The Booth Centre is recognised as being one of the country's leading day centres for homeless people. In 2010 the Centre came second in the National Day Centre of the Year awards and was given Champion status by the department of Communities and Local Government in recognition of our pioneering work to reduce the number of rough sleepers in Manchester.

The Booth Centre is an independent, registered charity (no. 1062674) with no religious or political affiliations.

We aim:

  • To provide a welcoming and accepting environment for people who are homeless.
  • To empower people to make informed choices and make positive changes in their lives.
  • To provide positive experiences in order to help people to build self respect and self confidence and to look to the future.

We do this through:

  • Providing Cafe Advice sessions, which are open and accessible.
  • Offering advice to help people resolve their problems.
  • Organising activities which are creative, therapeutic, challenging and enjoyable, and giving people the chance to work for nationally recognised qualifications.
  • Giving people help to move on to employment, education, training or voluntary work in the community.

To continue to develop, the Booth Centre needs donations of money, goods and people's time.  To find out more about the Booth Centre, visit their website.
