A warm welcome overnight for homeless people in the coldest months

How it works

The Winter Shelter in Maidstone is making a big difference to the lives of people in circumstances beyond their control and who find themselves homeless.

It is achieving great outcomes for guests,  80% of whom are successful in moving on to accommodation, work or training. Click on the link to see an example of how the Shelter works and has changed the lives of of some of our guests




Using church buildings staffed by project workers and volunteer teams, the Shelter hopes to take the uncertainty and stress out of trying to find overnight accommodation during the coldest nights of the winter. Fifteen people each evening at venues in central Maidstone can be accommodated and are assessed each afternoon, Monday to Friday, at the Gateway in King Street.
