Merton Winter Night Shelter is a project involving YMCA London South West and nearly 20 faith groups in the Merton area of London.

We offer warmth, food and a place to sleep for up to 12 local rough sleepers over the coldest months of December, January and February.

A number of faith groups provide a shelter for one night per week for half of that period, and volunteers to help run it.

We also help to provide move-on opportunities for our guests.

But we still need your help. If you would like to contribute or volunteer, please get in touch by emailing us at mertonnightshelter@gmail.com, or via our twitter feed @mertonshelter.
