We provide supervised overnight accommodation to homeless people (our Guests) who would otherwise be sleeping rough in Hastings and St Leonards during the extreme winter months (end-November to mid-March).

Our Guests are referred to us by various local organisations, primarily the Seaview Project and the St John Ambulance Homeless Service, and also the Police and Hastings Borough Council Housing Department.(We regret we are unable to accept people who just turn up at a shelter location unannounced.)

We see this project as another way of reaching many who live "life on the fringe". It does much more than provide comfort and shelter on bitterly cold nights; it could be the start of a new life.
