Horsham Churches Together in partnership with Horsham Matters provide a winter Night Shelter.
The aim of the Shelter is to provide safe, emergency accommodation and food to homeless people in the Horsham District. Our partner agencies work alongside our shelter to support our guests towards permanent accommodation.
The Shelter provides free accommodation for up to ten locally connected homeless people for a period of 4 months each winter.
The accommodation is provided in a different church each night of the week and the Shelter is run by a team of approximately 250 volunteers across the shelter season.
Guests receive a hot meal, usually cooked on site by volunteers. The meal provides an opportunity for volunteers and guests to socialise together over a meal. Each Church venue provides evening activities including games, films and books etc.
