What is A Bed Every Night?
Nobody should have to sleep rough on the streets of Greater Manchester. A Bed Every night provides a bed, warm welcome, and personal support for anyone who is sleeping rough or at imminent risk of sleeping rough in Greater Manchester.
This is Greater Manchester – we live by a different set of values. We don’t walk on by.
With politicians, sports stars, charities, businesses, the public and private sector, faith and community groups and the public all coming together, a crisis which has escalated in this age of austerity can be tackled and, eventually, removed from our social landscape once and for all.
A Bed Every Night is part of an integrated system and is one of a number of options available to people experiencing or at risk of rough sleeping here in Greater Manchester.

Thanks to you we’re helping people off the streets – for good.
