Hackney Winter Night Shelter

Join our mailing list

Hackney Winter Night Shelter provides a hot meal and a warm bed for homeless guests who would otherwise be out on the streets during the coldest winter months.

The shelter is now open.

During the season we work with more than 80 guests and throughout the year our link workers continue to assist them with finding more stable accommodation.

We can only do this with your support. Please donate now, become a volunteer and read our latest news.

If you would like to help a street homeless person, please get in touch with Street Link. They will help them to access other services. You can phone them on 0300 500 0914 or refer someone via the Street Link website.

It’s normally the time of year we’d have our sell-out comedy night, A Belter for the Shelter. This is still going ahead on Saturday 6 February 2016, but in the meantime come along to Hackney’s hottest new band night, A Swelter for the Shelter at Paper Dress on 26 November.

What’s the shelter all about?

This timelapse video, filmed in 2014/15 by Paul Driver, gives a sense of what it’s like at the shelter.
