VISION - We are youth and community based project in Shoreditch and our aim is to show transformational love to those in our community who are more vulnerable through real and practical ways.

The Women's Night Shelter is a new project starting on Sunday 13th January 2019 and running until Sunday 31st March 2019. We will offer shelter to women who are rough sleeping every night of the week. We are working with the Housing Justice and a number of other churches and organisations in East London to offer shelter to up to 12 vulnerable homeless women over the coldest months of winter.  

Our aim is to provide a warm and loving environment for these women while they are being sheltered through serving a hot meal and offering beauty/hair treatments or just chatting with the women and helping to create a loving space so that they feel comfortable, relaxed and welcomed.  

The host sites and days will be at various locations, we are looking for volunteers specifically for the following:

Mon, Tues, Weds, Sat - St Leonards Church, Shoreditch - hosted by Sapphire Community Group

Thurs - Arch 76, Bethnal Green - hosted by Arch 76 (a project for vulnerable women)
