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.
