         95 DIFFERENT PEOPLE USED OUR SERVICES LAST WINTER

The Bracknell Night Shelter provides a friendly welcome, tea and coffee and a place to rest. An evening meal is served by volunteers about 8.30 pm and everyone is expected to retire to bed not later than 10pm.


Normally games and activities will be available and clothing will be available at some churches. All will have supplies of new underclothes and socks. Churches taking part endeavour to provide washer/ dryer facilities on site.


The Night Shelter is open to those who can produce a pass allowing them entry.   Food is not available to casual visitors.


The Night Shelter is alcohol and drugs free. It does not allow weapons, violence or threatening behaviour towards any one present. Bags may be searched, if it is suspected that alcohol etc. may be present. All bags must be handed in for safe keeping until the guest leaves in the morning.


If guests leave the premises, they will not be re-admitted that night, as you are expected to stay in the building and rest so those who need to sleep may do so in peace.

 

There will be a security manager on guard and those who break the above rules will be liable to summary expulsion.


Doors are closed at 10 pm, but guests are expected to come for the evening meal at about 8.30 pm.


The purchase of take-away meals is discouraged as it is disrespectful to those who have prepared the food.


In the morning there will be a breakfast before leaving time at about 8 am.


We need volunteers for the overnight shift and the breakfast shift. If this would interest you then go to the volunteering page on this website and download the volunteering form.
