Winter Night Shelter at St John’s Centre – Volunteers Needed

27 November 2017

The Greater Manchester Winter Night Shelter is a group of churches and community buildings which provide shelter, a hot meal and companionship to 12 homeless men every night over the winter months.

In January-April 2018, St John’s Centre will be hosting the Night Shelter every Saturday night.

The project needs volunteers to staff shifts (evening, overnight or morning), and to help with cooking, laundry, driving, and other tasks. You can commit as much or as little time as you can spare; you do not need to have any experience working with homeless people, and training will be provided.

There is more information about volunteering, and instructions on how to register online, on the GMWNS Timecounts page.

If you are interested and would like to find out more, or would like help registering as a volunteer, St John’s Centre staff (including people who have volunteered for the Shelter in previous years) will be available to help every Tuesday from 12-1.30pm.
