More About Lifeshare
Lifeshare is Manchester’s oldest charity dedicated to supporting homeless and vulnerable people in Greater Manchester. Established in 1984 by a group of volunteers who recognised the lack of support for the city’s increasing number of rough sleepers and Lifeshare began. In the following decades, Lifeshare initiatives would become fundamental to the efforts in tackling homelessness in Manchester.
Lifeshare has evolved as the needs of Manchester’s most vulnerable people have changed over the past four decades. We started by providing food to rough sleepers from a burger van before pioneering sexual health support and needle exchanges for sex workers. The last decade has seen Lifeshare at the forefront of the fightback against Spice and leading the way in supporting young people with complex needs.

Lifeshare is a voluntary organisation established to help meet the needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Manchester and Salford. The first point of contact is with people on the streets, offering practical assistance, support and information. From this point they offer continued assistance that enables people to secure suitable accommodation, support them in maintaining their tenancies, and help them to access initiatives that carry their lives forward.
