Hackney Winter Night Shelter

An open meeting is being held this Monday 24th October for any residents interested in volunteering at Hackney's winter night shelters for the homeless.
The shelters were started seventeen years ago by a local Christian group and are now a registered charity.

The shelters will provide a meal and bed for the night for vulnerable homeless people in Hackney during the cold winter from January to March at various churches throughout the borough.

Last year the Shelter provided accommodation for 92 people including 11 women and helped 62 people find permanent accommodation.

If you feel you could spare some time to help the shelters with food preparation and supervision it would be greatly appreciated.

The meeting is being held on Monday 24th October at St. Mark's Church Hall, St. Mark's Rise, Daltson, E8 2NL from 7.30pm. Map
