What they do:
The Manna Society is a day centre, based near London Bridge, that provides a compassionate and practical response to the problems faced by London’s poor and homeless. The centre is open seven days a week, for 51 weeks of the year, providing breakfast and lunch; showers; clothing; housing and welfare advice; medical care, and access to laptops. Their services are available to anyone in need, with approximately one-third of their service users sleeping rough, one-third in hostels for the homeless, and one-third in rented accommodation.
How you can help:
The Manna Society relies on the generosity of volunteers and donations to provide their vital services to those in need. Volunteering opportunities include helping to serve food; distributing clothing; and helping the centre’s clients to use the laptops provided so that they can access online services.
You can also help by donating food for the hot meals and sandwiches that are available every day; or by donating clothing, especially for men, and other essential items, as well as donating money. They also offer sponsorship opportunities for corporate partners who want to make a real difference to the lives of those experiencing homelessness and poverty.
