Get help Shelter Self-referral form Our night shelters operate only during the winter months and will open 6 November 2017 and run through to 8 April 2018. We have an open-door policy, meaning anyone can access the shelters and no referral from another organisation in needed. But please note we are oversubscribed. Registration to join the shelters usually happen on the day the shelters open at our partner drop-in centres. Potential guests joining after the first day usually have to join a waiting list and be persistent before a place opens up. Fill out the form HERE.
