Churches Winter Shelter 2015-16

Tonight there will be around 20 people sleeping rough in Tunbridge Wells. Let's help the vulnerable in our town get off the street and into a shelter again this winter.

The Winter Shelter for 2016 has now closed but plans are already underway for 2017.The shelter will be open from Monday 2 January - Sunday night 5 March 2017.

If you'd like to be a part of it, whether as a volunteer in the shelter, or to bake or help us with laundry, the DEADLINE for volunteer applications is Wednesday 30 November.

All new volunteers will need to attend 2 training sessions in October - dates and venues to be confirmed. All returning volunteers are encouraged to attend Police Training and are welcome to come to the one of the other training sessions as a refresher.

Commissioning Service is Saturday 19 November, 7.30pm at Christ Church, High Street and the Closing Service will be on Sunday 5 March.

For any queries or questions, or if you have any concerns about someone sleeping rough in Tunbridge Wells, please call Wendy Hogg (Project Manager and Rough Sleeper Support Worker) on 07513 377951 or email office.twcws@gmail.com. Thank you.
