Action Groups: Learn more about what we do

At the heart of the Partnership are our Action Groups, which tackle specific challenges that people who are homeless may face. Each group includes people who have experienced the topic in question, as well as those who have relevant skills or professional expertise.  

We are open to anyone who shares our goal of ending homelessness in Manchester – please sign up to an Action Group using our form here, or get in touch via email at for more information.
