Charity description

Hackney Winter Night Shelter logo
Hackney Winter Night Shelter provides a hot meal and a warm bed for homeless guests who would otherwise be out on the streets during the coldest winter months.
Our vision is for a route out of homeless for everyone in need in Hackney, so we offer this alongside professional and holistic support to help our guests rebuild their lives.

Hackney Winter Night Shelter (HWNS) is a volunteer-led organisation that values the contribution and experience of volunteers from all walks of life.  From November to April each year we open our doors to around 100 guests
and our Advocate Workers continue to assist them throughout the year helping them find more stable accommodation, addressing health and other issues, to rebuild their lives after homelessness.

Hackney Winter Night Shelter has been opening doors to homeless people in the borough since 1993. It is run by Hackney Doorways, a registered charity.

Charity No: 1139183
