Team volunteering days and sponsorship


Arrange a team volunteering day (over 18s only)

Spend a day volunteering in one of our projects and learning more about the work we do. Once we have welcomed and briefed your team, each person will be paired up with our regular volunteers for a variety of tasks. These might include: working in our kitchen or food pantry, serving drinks, helping to sort out donations, staffing our welcome desk, joining in and/or supporting our activities, working in our garden or community allotment.

There will be lots of opportunities for team members to talk with people in the service or to sit and have meal with them. We also have various activity sessions, which we encourage you all to fully participate in, rather than observe. It’s an easy way to just be alongside people and chat. The day ends with a de-briefing session, which is your team’s opportunity to ask questions, give feedback and learn more about what we have planned that you can help us with, as well as to capture your Team Photo and any permissions.

Sponsor a room

Your donation of £1,500 could help us to provide a room for someone experiencing homelessness.  

Caritas operates a number of supported accommodation projects for people who might otherwise be sleeping rough or in unsuitable bed and breakfast accommodation.

This includes accommodation for men only, and also for young parents and their infant children to receive the good start to life a baby needs.

A donation of £1,500 could pay for a lovely room with brand new bedding, towels, furniture, kitchen accessories and decoration for a homely start towards independent living.

Make a donation now or contact us for more details.

Sponsor a course

Your donation of £1,500 could help improve a person’s knowledge and skills.  

As well as ensuring an individual’s urgent practical needs are met, we also have the joy of accompanying them to discover the areas of their life they’d like to change and improve or the skills and experience they’d like to acquire.

Our wide range of projects support people of all ages and backgrounds throughout the year.

“Everyone was so welcoming. I even managed to fix the curtains using techniques learnt.” Person having completed a course at Caritas.

Whether that’s skills for parenting, budgeting, cooking, English lessons, computer skills, or something else… your gift could help someone on the next steps to transforming their lives with dignity.

Your donation of £350 could help provide outdoor activity sessions.  

Meaningful outdoor activities can take place all year round at our projects across Greater Manchester and Lancashire.

It is a well-known fact that being outside in nature is good for your health – physically, mentally and spiritually – and the people who access support in this way continue to provide feedback that it’s been so helpful for their wellbeing.

“It’s kept me off my addiction and I’ve had more confidence. I’ve met a bunch of beautiful people who are really nice, we’re like a team now. It’s my favourite day of the week, I feel like real calm, my anxiety goes, I don’t have all that tension.” Person reflecting on their time with us.

Sponsor an indoor activity

Your donation of £250 could help enrich our daily activity programme.  

Taking part in sports sessions, arts and crafts, drama, cooking, creative writing, music, composing, singing, painting or pottery is what makes us human. And just because you are struggling at the moment, doesn’t mean you should not be able to pursue these lifegiving activities.

Every day at Caritas, we have a full programme of activities, which your donation of £250 could help to support.

“I enjoy the interaction with other people and the activities are great.” Person accessing our weekly activity programme.
