Rather than giving money to people on the street, Real Change Wigan and Leigh has been set up to raise funds to directly support people in the local area experiencing homelessness.
It uses the funds generated to pay for practical items which directly help people to move off the streets or avoid homelessness, like a deposit for a home, rent, essential household items, a training course, or shoes or clothes for a job interview etc.
How can I help?
If you or someone you know is homeless or will be homeless soon complete our referral form.
