Nightshelter - guests enjoy soup

Night Shelter

The night shelters run through the winter months – from mid November to early April – and is based at a different church venue each night on a rota basis. We provide a warm, safe and welcoming shelter for at up to 100 guests every night. Our guests also receive a hot evening meal and a cooked breakfast in the morning. 


Everyone who stays at the shelter is given a sleeping mat and sleeping bag. Our male and female guests sleep in different areas.


We find that we are constantly oversubscribed; more people come to us than we can accommodate. Those who cannot access the shelter when it is full are served a hot meal and drink with some friendly words. On nights when the temperature drops below freezing, we do try to accommodate all those that arrive at our door, as long as we feel it is safe to do so.
