2024 marks the twelfth year of The Rucksack Project.

It represents one of the most direct and practical ways of supporting the work we do for the people of Stockport that need it the most.

The idea is really simple…

We aim to provide essential items for as many homeless or housing vulnerable people as possible during the winter months. We know that this year may be the most difficult in a long time for increasing amounts of people. The donations from our supporters always have a huge positive impact on these people in instant and helpful ways.

We want to make this our most successful Rucksack Project ever to show them we are always there!
