Our COVID-19 Statement

Hello, as you are aware here at Lifeshare we take the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers very seriously.


Taking that and the ongoing seriousness of the Covid – 19 outbreak, we have made the decision to close our buildings until further notice and work remotely.


We will still be available for appointments, on the phone and through our social media channels.


We have not made this decision lightly and we hope you can understand the need for us to do this.


We will continue to update as often as we can.


Thank you for your continued support.

Christmas Project

As I’m sure you can imagine, planning a Christmas project in the midst of a worldwide pandemic poses its difficulties, but we are very happy to say that we have been able to facilitate our 33rd Christmas project in collaboration with the Manchester City Council, Cracking Good Food, Niamos and Barnabus.


There will be Christmas dinners, fresh clothes and people to talk to.


If you are younger than 18 years old we ask that you call the social services on 0161 234 5001 and do not come to the Christmas project, though if you do come we, of course, will not turn you away.


If you’d like to help us continue offering support to vulnerable people across Manchester please consider making a donation.


The opening hours & location for the Christmas Project are as follows:


24th December – 29th December

7am2pm every day
