As we work with vulnerable adults at the shelter we recognise the importance dedicated training provides to give you the confidence and skills to be your best as a volunteer. 

Volunteer handbook

All those who attend volunteer training are provided a copy of our volunteer handbook, outlining best practice and guidelines for volunteering at a shelter.  

DBS Checks

The shelter works with vulnerable adults and a DBS check demonstrates that you are a suitable person to work with vulnerable adults.

We encourage shelter volunteers to secure their DBS if possible.


For those claiming agreed expenses from Hackney Winter Night Shelter, please contact [email protected] for a copy of the relevant forms to complete.
