Backup northwest are Business of the year as they are not only an accommodation provider for some of Bolton's most vulnerable young people but they offer Love guidance, education and employment opportunities.
When all other doors are closed Backups is always open.
I love how everything they do is for the best outcomes for vulnerable young people
Staff go above and beyond and anyone I knew had to rely on someone for help and housing support I would recommend BACKUP

truly understands the needs of young people. Help right from the start to finish.
Really friendly people running this charity. They put on a fab fund raising night without pressure to constantly donate to the charity. Great cause which is sadly getting worse, good job charities like this exist!
Backup is a 'life-saver' for many young people. Staff are committed to turning these young people's lives around. Backup is more than a homeless housing charity; provides emotional and wellbeing support, alongside practical elements in educating their residents about all aspects of homecare and managing personal finance in order to be able to live independently. The North-West, and in particular Bolton, is a far better place because of the backup service it provides young people in need.
An amazing charity that support young homeless people. It's not just about putting a roof over their head but about life skills, independent living skills, education and emotional support.
The work is invaluable and the staff are passionate about they do and work really hard to get the best possible outcomes
This little local charity has the biggest heart. What an amazing job Maura and the team do to help local vulnerable young people. With 100% dedication the results they achieve are amazing for a small charity.
I have been aware of Backup North West for many years. I have worked with them delivering development sessions for young people and staff. I have witnessed first hand the difference they make to the lives of vulnerable young people. The team are dedicated and committed to the young people they work with. The leadership of this organisation is exceptional. It is because of the difference this organisation makes that we decided to give a regular donation knowing that our small contribution is used effectively for the benefit of the young people. The staff or this organisation live its values. This organisation changes lives. They truly deserve Business of the year!
I would like to nominate Backup, also known as BYPHS, as the BEST charity in Bolton. It provides a holistic service to young homeless people and gives them support, both materially and emotionally, to help them get to a place where they can look forward to a better and more successful future. I rate thus a five star service that makes Bolton a richer community.
