A warm welcome overnight for homeless people in the coldest months

I came to the shelter after the Day Centre advised me to. I was assessed by staff at the Shelter and from that point given a bed, along with my partner. I can honestly say I have been so grateful for the rest in the warmth and a good meal and just being able to chat and feel a person again. I lost my property due to big rent arrears which led me to be homeless, along with my partner. We have lived in a tent for two years and my partner has been going to work every day to try and pay back the arrears, it has been so hard and it had begun to take toll on us both.

The winter Shelter has given us the motivation to carry on and move forward with other agency support. I would like to say thank you so much for this break, I cannot thank all the staff enough.
