As always, a huge thanks to the volunteer teams at each of the Night Shelter venues, here’s a few pics so far…..
The Slough council emergency shelter opened Monday 10th Dec and will run through to the end of March 2019. It is not a direct access shelter: referral forms and information are available at My Council, Salvation Army and SHOC. The completed forms are returned to My Council who will then contact the clients/referring agency to confirm a space is available for them.
The same forms are used for access to Crisis at Christmas (we will provide transport there on 23rd Dec and back to Slough on 30th Dec). Referral forms for Crisis must be returned to My Council by the morning of Monday 17th Dec.
Our own Slough Winter Night Shelter will start when we bring guests back from Crisis on 30th Dec and will run until the end of March 2019 – the referral process is the same for the Slough Winter Night Shelter as the council’s shelter and the two together will be able to offer a total of 40 beds each night.
We are so very grateful to all the Sleepers, volunteers and fundraisers who have made this years Sleepout such a success and to St Bernards School in Langley for allowing us to use their grounds. We are delighted to announce that we have exceeded our target to fund this years Night Shelter so thank you so very much again!
