Open every night from 9.30pm until Feb 2020

From November 2019 we are helping the Salvation Army and Newark Baptist Church with running a winter night shelter for rough sleepers and those as risk of rough sleeping.

Volunteers needed

Become a winter night shelter volunteer

We require volunteers with a desire to help and improve the lives of those who are homeless and rough sleeping.

You will be part of a team that supports rough sleepers by:

  • Providing a winter night shelter every night between November and February 2020
  • Preparing a light supper and breakfast
  • Being available throughout the night (team members alternate between sleeping/awake) while rough sleepers are bedded down and asleep

Each volunteer must complete an application form, provide proof of ID and supply names of suitable references. All relevant training will be provided.

Contact Cheska Asman for further information - 01636 655 643 /

Offering help and advice

Individuals using the shelter will receive advice and support from us in an effort to prevent them from returning to the streets.

Visit our statutory homelessness page if you require homelessness advice or support at times when the shelter is not open.
