Overview

Audacious Foundation works to see UK communities transformed and individuals empowered and enabled to thrive in every season of life. The Foundation was created to serve these communities in Greater Manchester and help address the issues faced by the region including poverty, homelessness and family challenges. The foundation works alongside the community to educate, encourage and empower people to overcome life challenges and live a balanced, healthy life. Our mission is to build better futures by providing practical solutions to societal challenges.

Achieved to date

HOME has grown directly out of our A-Teams work, supporting the homeless in the Manchester city centre region. Focused on building better futures for those experiencing homelessness, HOME works in partnership with investment organisations and local housing providers to place men and women who have been living on the streets into supported accommodation.

Why we do this

The aim of HOME is to provide vulnerable individuals with more than just a roof over their head. Through this project we commit to walking out long-term transformation with individuals, step-by-step. Supporting the journey from street to stability, our team of staff and volunteers help them turn a house into a home, re-integrate into local community life and access relevant training courses. By building individual capacity in the context of community, we prepare our tenants to manage and maintain their own property agreements, positioning them to own a home of their own in the future.

Future plans

Going forward we are looking at having properties all over the Greater Manchester area and possibly going over to Chester to work with our campus there.


green pastures review

The Audacious Foundation is a charity established by the Audacious Church to “champion transformation for individuals and communities. The “Foundation” run a number of services including A- Teams, comprised of a strong pool of volunteers who over eight years have been meeting the immediate needs of on average one hundred homeless people each week. Amazing dedication. Out of the A-Team another project (HOME) has been developed by the Foundation. HOME works in partnership with housing providers and investors to provide a home and a future with meaning and dignity, for the homeless people it works with. At Green Pastures we are delighted to welcome the Audacious Foundation as a new partner. We have recently purchased property for the Audacious Foundation, but some technical issues of an electrical nature, have delayed occupation being taken up by tenants. The person leading on this for the “Foundation” is Julian Wolstencroft, who has impressed with his patience and willing help to get matters sorted. It is great to be involved from the outset with a new project that promises much.
