Thank you to everyone who has in any way helped or donated to this year's Night Shelter. Amazing changes in people's lives have been achieved.
February saw the opening of the Night Shelter at 1 West Street Newbury with the facility to cater for 20 people. This could not have been achieved without the generosity of the community and businesses in the Newbury area - a BIG thank you to you all!
We're now winding down and preparing to close the Night Shelter but will still continue to work hard fundraising throughout the year and would very much appreciate your continuing help.
Charity begins at home, but what about those people without a home? We are a community based charity in West Berkshire set up to assist the homeless back into a home. Our aim is zero tolerance to homelessness in our area
Volunteers play a vital part in any Charitable Organisation and in the run up to the extended night provision for the Winter period in 2019 (February to April) West Berkshire Homeless need as many willing hands as possible to come on board.
Can you help?
Please do contact us if you feel
you could help in any way.
As we 'Spring forward' through the year,
in co-operation with West Berkshire Council, the Night Shelter is remaining open till Friday, 24th May. This will enable further time for the existing residents to be supported in their transition. WBH also have lots of plans moving forward as we continue to work with the homeless community -
