One Shelter | Seven Venues
Supporting the homeless, challenging homelessness
Every winter, thousands of people in the UK end up with no home.
It’s a national problem and sometimes it feels like there is nothing we can do. But there is.
The Greenwich Winter Night Shelter (GWNS) is a Christian charity in the Royal Borough of Greenwich which provides dinner, safe overnight accommodation and breakfast to homeless people over the winter months from mid-November to end March. GWNS started in 2015 and is staffed entirely by volunteers apart from our project manager and case manager. It has established itself as a reliable and trusted service to both referral agencies and guests.
For homeless people, a winter night shelter can be as little as a safe place to sleep out of the rain or as much as a step forward to self-sufficiency.
