Corporate support and partnerships

Your organisation can help us end homelessness and create safe places where all people can flourish.

Homelessness is rising. According to the latest research by Crisis, 300,000 households across Great Britain could be forced into homelessness this year. In Rochdale, we have the 7th highest rate of homelessness in the North-West. The effects of the pandemic and cost of living crisis continue to have a negative effect on people. 

Petrus has been providing essential support for those who have experienced, or who are at risk of being homeless in Rochdale, for more than 50 years.  

By partnering with us, you and your colleagues can join us on our journey to end homelessness for good. Through strategic collaboration you can generate social value and help us deliver vital services that help people take back control of their lives.

With your support, Petrus can be there for everyone who needs us.
