Practical advice and signposting, crisis intervention, medical support, accommodation referrals and always emotional support – 7 nights a week.
Coffee4Craig supports over 60 people each night and also offers an out of hours referral service for A Bed Every Night (when the temperature drops to zero and people who face sleeping outside are offered accommodation).
This is in partnership with The Men’s Room, Manchester City Council Outreach Team and day services in Manchester.
