New hostel opens its doors to Manchester’s homeless

Registered charity Stop Start Go (SSG) Sustainable Living has opened its doors to a new hostel offering a holistic home for the homeless in Manchester.

A stone’s throw away from the Booth Centre, the hostel on Cheetham Hill Road offers temporary supported accommodation and an innovative tailored programme of support for 15 people.

The first phase of the project is now complete with 12 individuals benefiting from 24 hour onsite support, respite, recovery and reconnection, which includes supporting individuals on their journey to independent living.

The final phase of the project will include the refurbishment of the ground floor which will provide room for three more individuals and that will be start next month.

Street Support, said: “It’s great to see a new hostel open in Manchester and their approach to helping tackle homelessness in the city and the support and help on offer is highly commendable.

“We can’t wait to see the partnership grow and to see more and more people rebuild their lives.”

The much-needed hostel will continue to collaborate with the Booth Centre and other charities and agencies across Manchester.

The new hostel was made possible by funding through the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund, Manchester City Council and the Edward Holt Trust.
