The Winter Shelter

The Winter Shelter runs between the winter months of November to March providing approximately 22 to 42  beds per night to rough-sleeping individuals. Individual needs are assessed at Emmanuel House where individuals, if necessary, are referred to this temporary accommodation provided in local Winter_Shelter_Logochurch hall.

The shelter provides emergency shelter, acceptance, physical and emotional support, and encouragement in making positive changes in the lives of our guests including securing long term accommodation
solutions. Winter Shelter operates across five different church halls and is operated by a team of coordinators, project workers and volunteers managed by Emmanuel House.

Anyone over the age of 18 can access our services regardless of their personal characteristics or cultural identity. For the 2015/2016 season there were 112 volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to continue with this service and work in shifts, helping to prepare simple meals, check in guest and help with the set up of the shelter as well as taking down beds in the morning.
