Watford Winter Night Shelter

Watford Borough Council is working in partnership with local homelessness prevention charities New Hope and One YMCA to run a winter night shelter for rough sleepers in the town.

The shelter, based at One YMCA will run from 1 December 2019 until 31 March 2020.

As well as providing hot food and shelter there will be a range of other support available to rough sleepers organised through the Street Outreach Service and the Intervention Team based at New Hope who aim to help people leave and stay off the streets.

Last year 105 people benefited from this humanitarian initiative which gave shelter to any rough sleeper who wanted it from the worst of the winter weather.

New Hope is looking for volunteers to help run the shelter, if you are interested in helping please click the button below.
