The Winter Night Shelter

The winter night shelter runs every day from the beginning of November to the end of March each year, with a week’s break from 23-30th December when our guests go to Crisis at Christmas. Each evening, overnight and morning shift relies on volunteers to help with set-up, food preparation, making and stripping beds, and providing hospitality to our guests.

The shift patterns for volunteers are as follows:

Evening: 18.30 – 21.30

Overnight (sleeping shift): 21.00 – 07.30

Morning: 07.00 – 09.00

New volunteers are required to provide two references, and complete the C4WS Online Volunteer Training, prior to their first shift.
