What do Swindon Night Shelter do?

We work with churches across Swindon, also with local and national businesses to distribute charitable surplus, supporting and working with other services and charities.

We work every day of the week to serve our guests wherever they are in the cycle of homelessness.

We run a free walk up Night Shelter on Friday nights at St Mary's Church Hall on Cheney Manor Road, 9pm - 8am for people who are homeless. They will receive a hot meal, shower and laundry facilities and a bed for the night.

During the week we offer food, support, mentoring, work experience, training and help into rehab at our Warehouse Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 10.00am - 1.00pm. (Other times by appointment).We support our guests wherever we can.

Mid-week we go out onto the streets to check on our guests in partnership with Threshold Housing.

We have two community cafés, The Hub Shop and Café on Cricklade Road which raises money for the work of Swindon Night Shelter and The Gate Café in Park North which is a community base for the area.

How is the Night Shelter funded?

We are funded by donations, businesses and fundraising, we have no regular support, as a Christian organisation we are supported by local churches and we rely on God to do the work.
