The Manchester Shelter - Supported Housing for Homeless Muslim Women

The National Zakat Foundation has established dedicated shelters for homeless Muslim women in various parts of the UK.

The shelters provide a safe haven for destitute women who have nowhere to turn in times of desperate need. As well as accommodation, we aim to provide a number of different support services to enable women to better cope with any difficulties they are facing and rebuild their lives in a positive manner.

The shelters are not intended for long-term occupancy as we wish to help women move on and resettle back into the community.
