This year volunteer's week coincides with the Jubilee bank holiday weekend and our volunteers are stepping up to help keep our shelters open for guests throughout the next four days - all day and all night - providing a safe and welcoming space for everyone to relax and enjoy a few days together at the shelter.
We are also marking 18 months since our main year-round shelter opened its doors to people experiencing people in Hackney. During that time over 200 people have signed up to volunteer at the new shelter, and another 50+ at our women's shelter.
Our volunteers have kept going and kept the shelters running throught the Covid pandemic during periods of lockdown and other restrictions.
We are so grateful to every one who has volunteered at a shelter, or in any other way - they make the world of difference to Hackney Night Shelter and to the people they help us to support on their journeys out of homelessness.
We always welcome new volunteers, to find out more about how you can get involved and join the team please email: [email protected]
