About

The Glasgow Night shelter provides a safe space and a hot meal for men who cannot access statutory benefits or homeless services due to their immigration status.

The hardship fund will provide a small amount of money to these individuals so they can purchase the most basic of things such as soap or razor blades.

Please donate to the cause and/or come to our night of Techno to raise funds for Glasgow Night Shelter.

9pm - 1am
The Flying Duck
142 Renfield St
Glasgow

Event details

Hardship Fund Appeal 2019

We provide a safe space and a hot meal for men who cannot access statutory benefits or homeless services due to their immigration status. They are mainly refused asylum seekers who cannot work, study or receive public funds.

Our guests are completely destitute, without our help they'd have to sleep rough, exposed to the elements and vulnerable to illness, exploitation and violence.

With no recourse to public funds, most at the night shelter are without any financial support whatsoever. This means they can't use public transport, get a haircut, buy clothes or a cup of coffee, or acquire anything at all that needs cash. They are completely reliant on charity to provide sustenance, shelter and safety.

It's difficult to imagine what it's like to live without any money at all, unable to buy even basic things such as soap or razors. It's difficult to imagine that some men have lived in this way for several years.

It's not difficult, however, to understand the destructive effect this situation has on the self-esteem and mental health of our guests.
