If you would like to donate to the Mayor's Homelessness Fund you can do so via GoFundMe

You can read more about the launch of the fund on this page.


Please note, we will not be able to facilitate the donation of items such as sleeping bags, tents and outdoor clothing.

Distribution of resources will be decided by the fund's trustees, including people who have experienced homelessness in Greater Manchester, the GM Mayor's Leads on Homelessness and national homelessness experts.

The Mayor's Fund will operate as a Community Foundation, an independent charity which disseminates funds to local organisations through a grant process. In the interim period while the Community Foundation is created, the fund will be available on gofundme, facilitated by Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, and transferred in full to the Mayor's Homelessness Fund on completion of the process.
