A warm welcome overnight for homeless people in the coldest months

Access the Shelter

Maidstone Churches Winter Shelter will provide shelter this winter from the 3rd January 2017 to 28th March 2017.

Our aim is to provide free evening hospitality including a hot meal and overnight shelter for homeless people in Maidstone.

Priority will be given to those who can evidence an established 6 month connection to Maidstone.
Vulnerability will be taken into consideration during assessment for allocation of bed space on the day.
