Supporting the marginalised

We help to support the marginalised within our communities including tackling homelessness in our City region (Manchester), through the contribution of land, resource, connections and influence.

We're working with partners to develop a housing-led community with wraparound support to help re-integrate the vulnerable back into society.

Although the Foundation has only just been established, we are working in alignment with our business partners, and the projects we are showcasing here are those that have been supported.

Project Spotlight

Embassy Village

In 2020, Peel L&P partnered with the charity and housing provider Embassy and the wider business community to tackle homelessness in Manchester by developing plans for 40 modular homes for vulnerable men.

Peel L&P has committed to the free provision of land in Castlefield as well as consultancy and access to Peel L&P supplier networks. Branded 'Embassy Village', the project will be run by the charity Embassy and will provide wraparound support to help re-integrate people back into society.

Embassy Village

It will provide safe, secure homes for people who are homeless or at the risk of being homeless with in-house start to end support and routes into work. Vulnerable people are housed and then surrounded by the support and training they need to leave the cycle of homelessness.

We are looking to create 40 new high quality permanent homes, each with their own front door. There will also be a Village Hall which will become a community hub and training and mentoring facility for residents. The experienced Embassy team will manage the site 24/7.

Embassy operates as a housing provider rather than a shelter and all potential residents are interviewed and triaged. Only those who are ready and, crucially, keen to work are offered accommodation.
