We are Nacro
We believe that everyone deserves a good education, a safe and secure place to live, the right to be heard, and the chance to start again, with support from someone on their side.
That’s why our housing, education, justice, and health and wellbeing services work alongside people to give them the support and skills they need to succeed. And it’s why we fight for their voices to be heard and campaign together to create lasting change.
We see your future, whatever the past.

The people we help
Andy was on the streets, homeless, heavily drinking and on probation. He got involved with Nacro through a local drug and alcohol service and was given somewhere to live and support.
"I didn’t see a future for myself or a life at all. All the support and the help I have from the team is incredible. They gave me an opportunity to really turn my life around. I’ve secured a tenancy for myself. My own tenancy. I went to rehab for six months. Now, I volunteer for Nacro.
It’s changed my life around."
Service spotlight: CONNECT Manchester
This is our partnership service which provides vulnerable people in Manchester with short-term housing related support.
Delivering against a joint vision to connect with people and places, the service aims to build thriving neighbourhoods and communities through the provision of housing and support services.
Our newly released Impact Report showcases the positive impact the service has had on the people we support, including Craig, who said: "It’s given me a route off the streets and into a warm, safe, cohesive community. There’s a structure here which enables people like me to go explore ourselves and opportunities."
I started working for Nacro 15 years ago as a support worker in our project helping men with complex or high needs.
Many had been homeless, have an offending history, an addiction or mental health problems. We help vulnerable people as they rebuild their lives. Across all my years, the one thing that has remained the same is how rewarding this job is. It can be hard, but when you see how far someone's come and is ready to move on and live independently, there’s nothing better.
