Lifeshare is incredibly pleased to announce that Sage Housing has agreed to sponsor our city centre Weekend Breakfast Project. This project is staffed by our dedicated volunteers and opens each Saturday and Sunday to provide hot meals, dry clothes, wellbeing packs, and a regular point of contact and support for some of Manchester’s most vulnerable people. Over a typical month, the Breakfast Project can see up to 1000 meals provided between our hot meal service and takeaway lunches provided. This vital support is key to helping ensure the wellbeing and health of the people of Manchester and continued throughout the COVID19 pandemic as a humanitarian aid project.

Sage is a Registered Provider of affordable housing across England, working with the largest housebuilders to deliver new housing for Shared Ownership (part buy, part rent) and low-cost rental homes. Sage’s rented homes are let exclusively to people on local authority housing waiting lists. They utilise shared ownership homes to offer a step on to the property ladder with a part buy, part rent way of owning a home. Since 2017, Sage have delivered over 5,000 homes, with a pipeline of more than 14,000 in-contract. Sage is regulated by the Social Housing Regulator.

Sage’s generous support will fund our city centre Breakfast located at the Nexus Art Cafe at 2 Dale street for the next 12-months, covering rent, volunteer expenses, and food costs. Lifeshare is incredibly grateful to receive this support which will help provide thousands of meals to those in need.
