Our Volunteers and Supporters

The real heart of Hackney Winter Night Shelter is our team of over 600 volunteers and co-ordinators who run the shelter each night and work tirelessly to raise funds and awareness of the shelter and its work.

We are also enormously grateful for the ongoing support of the wider community that provides local venues to host the shelter and key services such as laundry facilities, taxis and health clinics for guests.  Without them there would simply be no shelter.
