The Route

Why run for Shelter?

In recent years, there has been a sharp rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness in Greater Manchester. Right now, 1 in 154 people in Manchester are homeless.

We offer free advice and support to anyone who faces bad housing or homelessness across the UK. Your support helps us to make sure that no one has to fight homelessness alone.
