At MASH we also have a couple of specialist projects which support women who are experiencing homelessness and other big life challenges like ill health, fleeing violence or substance misuse.
We provide this support in a few different ways including via outreach into Manchester city centre. Our outreach worker and volunteer speak to and offer support to any women who are visibly begging or rough sleeping. They can help with accommodation, medical support, appointments, debts and more. MASH will never judge you or set any criteria for support.
We are also part of the Greater Manchester Housing First pilot scheme, supporting women to access permanent housing and then tackling any other issues around mental health, finances, new skills etc.
We’ll always work with you where you are at in your life. You are not alone.
