Our shelters run from a different church venue, every night of the week.  The shifts are waking shifts that last from 10pm until 7.15am.  You will be responsible for ensuring the security and safety of all guests in the shelter through the night, and that all project activities meet health and safety requirements.  You must remain awake and alert throughout the night and respond appropriately to any situations or emergencies that may occur.  The shelters house up to 35 people each night – though more may be accommodated if the weather is exceptionally cold.  You will be expected to take part in regular checks throughout the night.  The duty Project Workers are also responsible for preparing and serving breakfast to our guests and ensuring that everyone leaves each venue by 7am.
