how can you help us?
The Wellspring is a registered charity which runs a resource centre for homeless and disadvantaged people. It provides a whole host of specialised services, aimed at both preventing homelessness and supporting people out of homelessness. Around 150 people per day access the services at The Wellspring.
The Wellspring receives no Council funding, no funding from the Government or The National Lottery. It costs around £400 per day to run The Wellspring.
The Wellspring runs lots of fundraising events throughout the year from small coffee mornings to big events like the Great Manchester Run. Every single penny that the charity raises is spent on running the project and providing services to homeless and disadvantaged people.
Volunteering opportunities at the project, from teams working in our kitchen preparing and serving food to homeless people to teams doing away days, painting and decorating, cleaning, sorting donations and maintenance. We always have jobs that we need volunteers to do.
As an organisation you can get involved at The Wellspring in many ways, adopting The Wellspring as your charity of the year is a brilliant way to both engage your staff with a local charity and support homeless and disadvantaged people.
