What We Do

Temporary Accommodation

We provide warm, safe and friendly accommodation for the homeless in the coldest months of each year. The scheme runs annually between early December and mid-March, providing a hot meal, a bed and breakfast to approx 30 guests per night. Volunteers interact with the guests during their stay, engaging in a variety of activities including games, films and quizzes.

Since we started six years ago we have hosted 400 guests, provided around 6000 bed nights, and served over 10,000 meals and helped 185 people move into longer term accommodation.

Rebuilding Lives

WNSMK funds a welfare officer to work with those affected by homelessness. We help to rebuild their lives by signposting drug and alcohol support services and by helping individuals to find accommodation and work..
