About The Manna Society

The Manna Society is a UK registered charity (charity number: 294691) who work with homeless people and those in need. We run a day centre (the Manna Centre) which is open 7 days a week, 51 weeks of the year. We offer the following six services, breakfast & lunch, shower & washing facilities, clothing, housing & welfare advice, medical care and access to computers. All of our services are free.

On an average day we see between 120-150 people per day. Approximately three quarters of our service users are homeless or in temporary accommodation (44% sleeping rough, 12% in hostels, 13% staying with friends and 5% squatting. 45% are in receipt of Social Security Benefit, 51% have no income and 4% have income from another source – November 2018 figs).

It costs approximately £450,000 per year to provide our services. The only two sources of assured funding we have at the beginning of each financial year is £55,000 from the London Borough of Southwark (our local authority) and £60,000 from regular standing orders (individual donors). The remaining 74% has to be raised.

Any help that you can give will benefit some of the poorest and most marginalised people in our society.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
