How your walk helps end homelessness
We’re fighting for a future where everyone has a safe home. Many people don’t know where to turn to for help. People living in unsafe or unfit housing. People with no permanent place to call home.
The incredible funds you raise from your walk could help us defend everyone’s right to a safe and secure home, and continue providing support to people who are facing homelessness.
Hear stories from last year’s walkers
Did my walk today around not so sunny Rochdale. Got slightly drenched! The original intention was to complete 5k, but I kept going, motivated by the fact that not everyone has a warm home to go back to, like we do — Mellisa
Just completed our 10k, the children absolutely smashed it and they loved every minute— Kerrie and family
