An attack at a concert in Manchester left 22 people dead and more than 100 injured. Many of them were children.
To support those who were injured or bereaved, Manchester City Council launched the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, in partnership with the British Red Cross.
The money raised will help alleviate immediate suffering and ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.
- If you have been directly affected by the Manchester attack and need help from the fund, please contact 0800 458 9472.
Donations from over 450,000 people during the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday 4 June raised an additional £2.7m, bringing the latest total to £10.2m.
The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, in partnership with the British Red Cross, has launched a support line for people affected by the Manchester Arena attack.
The dedicated phone line is providing information on the Emergency Fund for people who are injured or bereaved, as well as practical advice and emotional support. The support line is staffed by volunteers trained in psychosocial support.
- The phone line will be open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm for as long as the service is needed.
- The phone number is 0800 458 9472.
If you would like someone to talk to out of these hours, or would like assistance with accessing specialist support and assistance in your community following the attack, you can contact Victim Support’s support line on 0808 168 9111, which is open 24 hours a day, every day.
