We are delighted to be supporting Hackney Winter Night Shelter.
For over 20 years, Hackney Winter Night Shelter have offered beds to people experiencing homelessness, from the start of November to the end of March. They have helped around 70 people every year to find more stable accommodation. More than 20 years ago a group of Hackney residents and members of Hackney church congregations (some of who, had personal experience of homelessness), were thinking about how they could help the people they saw sleeping on the streets around Hackney. They decided that if each member of a group of churches took responsibility for running a shelter for one night of the week, some of those people could be helped and this was the start. What started as a network of volunteers from local churches has developed into an effective route out of homelessness for many it supports.
Hackney Winter Night Shelter relies on grants, donations and fundraising from their partners and supporters to deliver the service to their guests.
