Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelter

Charity description

Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelter logo
Waltham Forest Churches together meeting the needs of the vulnerable on the streets.

a collaboration of seven local partner churches that came together in January 2009 to meet the need of those sleeping rough in the borough during the winter months. Each one has donated their premises and provided volunteers, food and bedding to sleep our guests for one night per week for five months over the
winter. We provide shelter facilities during these months, from 1 November through to 31 March, to meet their immediate needs including an evening meal, bed, breakfast, showers and a warm welcome. We also provide a caseworker to
help with longer term needs such as housing. FCENS is a rolling shelter sleeping 30 individuals at a different church venue each night of the week.
FCENS is non-judgemental in its operation and welcomes guests and volunteers of all persuasions without discrimination or favour.
Our caseworker is now working through the summer also to find housing for our guests.
