Do you have a spare room? Fancy putting it to good use?
The Boaz Trust began life as a hosting organisation back in 2004. Since then, we’ve offered over 280 hosting placements across Greater Manchester. In 2018-19, we hosted 12 men and women through our network of hosting volunteers.
“Boaz gave me somewhere to live and supported me. I was living with hosts who were really nice, and welcomed me and helped me to feel at home in their house even though I was a stranger.”
Hosting is an essential part of what we do and who we are as an organisation. Hosting is a very practical way that we can offer welcome, hospitality, friendship and kindness to people who are seeking sanctuary.
But the benefits are two-way. Many of our hosts have told us how their lives have been enriched through the people who have stayed with them. Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, as at October 2020 we are not currently looking to recruit new hosts, however you are still welcome to click here and read more about how hosting works at Boaz.
