Donate Money

The Manna Centre expenditure outstripped our income by £46,000 in the financial year just ended (19-20). All financial donations would be greatly appreciated.

We are open seven days a week, 51 weeks of the year, and serve between 120 and 150 people every day. Our running costs are approximately £40,800 per month. We are dependent on voluntary donations to raise approximately 90% of our annual £490,000 budget (our local borough, Southwark, covers two third’s of the cost of our housing & welfare service i.e. we receive £55,000 per year from Southwark – 11% of our annual budget).

  • £10 will cover the costs for an individual to use our services for a day.
  • £27 will cover the cost of our bought food for one day.
  • £71 will cover the costs of utilities (gas,electricity, water, phones, internet) for one day.

There are many ways of giving to suit all situations. If you have any questions, please contact our Administrator on 020 7357 9363 or

Your generosity is much appreciated and will help us continue our work. Many thanks!

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Manna Society

The Manna Centre is open 7 days a week. Before Covid we offered sit in meals but due to the pandemic we are now offering takeaway meals, consisting of a hot dinner and a sandwich. At present we are providing approximately 120 meals per day. In addition to our takeaway meals, we are also providing clothing packages and two showers per day, four days a week. About one quarter of those using our services are rough sleepers, one quarter are living in hostels or staying with friends and the remaining 46% are in rented accommodation. 59% are in receipt of Social Security benefits whilst 34% have no income whatsoever – April 21 statistics.


From April 2020 we have been providing a telephone helpline offering housing and welfare advice. In addition to our telephone helpline, from 16th June 2020 we have been offering clients housing & welfare appointments once again at the centre itself. The client and the advice worker are in separate rooms and converse via laptops. Both advice services operate from Monday to Friday and assist approximately 130 clients per month. More information is available on our website -

We are dependent on voluntary donations to raise 75% of our annual £490,000 budget.
