Winter Shelter

Volunteers say:

"Helping in the last few years has been very rewarding, helping others less fortunate than myself be safe, have a bed for the night and food"

"A wonderful experience"

Sleeping out during the winter period presents a number of risks and challenges to our clients; primarily their health and safety. Through a partnership with seven Rugby churches we are able to provide rough sleepers with a safe space to sleep, a hot evening meal and breakfast. Each of the seven church offers this hospitality on a one night a week rota.

The Winter Shelter operates December to March inclusive. All those who use the Winter Shelter have to be clients at the Hope Centre first; it is not run with a ‘just turn up’ approach because everyone must be risk assessed in advance.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer then please click here.

Our Winter Shelter partners are:

This year, due to COVID 19, we had to close our service on 20th March. However, as part of the Governments programme of ‘Everyone In’ and through our work locally with Rugby Borough Council, all of our clients were accommodated.

In winter 2019-20 we had...

clients who spent at least one night in the Winter Shelter. They were aged from 22 to 68.
bed nights used, but we had capacity for more.
volunteers who gave 1260 hours of volunteer time per month.
