Bury Homeless Partnership

What is Bury Homeless Partnership?

The Bury Homelessness Partnership is a forum which consists of organisations who deliver services to the homeless community. These include partners from statutory and the faith and voluntary sector. Homelessness is not a problem just for statutory services like the Council, rather its a problem for all services and the community. Therefore the Partnership is there to take ownership of homelessness and develop interventions, solutions and new ways of working.

Who has Bury Homeless Partnership helped?

There is great work that takes place in Bury and it is right that the success of the service users is celebrated.

Paul went from rough sleeping on the streets of Bury to being accommodated through A Bed Every Night (ABEN). Paul has now moved in to supported accommodation where he will learn the skills to manage his own tenancy.

Jessie has completed a successful journey through ABEN and the Bridges Service. He moved into his own tenancy in September.
