Mad Dogs Street Project is a community-led secular initiative, staffed by volunteers, providing food & clothes to the homeless of Manchester.
As well as regular donations from the general public the initiative also works in partnership with some Manchester businesses which offer support through regular donations of food and drink, clothing and survival supplies. These vital items are then distributed by a team of volunteers to people living rough on the streets of the city.
The Street Project was set up by a small group of community-spirited volunteers in August 2013 to provide support for the homeless of Manchester. The idea was borne from one of the founders suffering from Bipolar, and had he not had the privilege of private medical insurance he recognised he could quite easily of been one of the rough sleepers on the streets.
