Merton Night Shelter 2015 for website1 800x533 720x450 - Winter Night Shelters

Merton Winter Night Shelter is a project involving YMCA St Paul’s Group and nearly 20 faith groups in the Merton area of London.

Current situation during the Covid19 pandemic

After running a rotating system (different venue each night) for 9 years, Covid19 has forced us to entirely rethink how we operate. This winter we will be running the scheme from two flats that are part of a church building (Lantern Methodist) in Wimbledon. There will be 5 bedrooms for single occupancy use.

Shelter though the Winter months

We offer warmth, food and a place to sleep for up to 5 local rough sleepers over the coldest months of December, January and February and now offer an online referral form.

We also help to provide move-on opportunities for our guests.

Volunteer

But we still need your help. If you would like to contribute or volunteer, please get in touch by emailing us at winternightshelter@ymcaspg.org or via our twitter feed @mertonshelter.
