Volunteering For Homeless Charities In Bolton

Why Volunteer at a Homeless Charity in Bolton?

From those who find themselves unable to gain employment, to veterans who miss out on vital support, there are many out there who may have to resort to living on the streets. Homelessness is something that can affect anyone at any point in their lives when things like jobs, families and relationships break down. Many young people are now sleeping rough with over 100,000 across the UK asking for help from their local councils in the last year.  

Greater Manchester has a growing problem with homelessness, especially in larger towns like Bolton. But thanks to the efforts of some wonderful homeless charities, many people have been helped off the streets and given a shot at a better life.  

Playing People's Postcode Lottery is a great way of helping a person in need, as funds from every ticket sold go to thousands of great causes around the UK. But, if you'd like to help a local homeless charity in a more hands-on way, find out more about how you could volunteer for organisations in Bolton.
