NIGHT SHELTER

 

Holy Trinity Parish Hall, Southall

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Night Shelter and HSSH Day Centre operated on three separate locations in Southall with a capacity of 20 beds each night, all year round. Only registered guests were allowed at the night shelter, having been assessed by our Complex Needs Case Worker. 

 

The guests arrived on the premises at 7.30pm each day welcomed by staff and volunteers. They were provided with beds, cooked dinner, shower facilities, and an entertainment area where they played games, took part in a creative activity, or watched a film. Breakfast was served at 6.30am and then the night shelter closed by 8.30am.

 

This ended when the pandemic began.

Covid-19 Response

Sadly, the pandemic saw the closure of the night shelter spaces and gave rise to accommodation visits by our Complex Needs Case Worker and on the streets accompaniment by the Community Support Worker. In addition, the Homeless Project and Day Centre is now open at St Anselm's Church Southall, as a hub, offering current HSSH guests and others, an emergency response service for food, bedding, GP registration, alcohol and drugs support, as well as support for those wishing to return, voluntarily, to their home country.
