Announcement regarding the Winter night shelter 2020
October 20, 2020 CWan-Docksey

Following the latest Government guidelines, a night shelter, as operated in previous years, will not take place locally this winter due to coronavirus.

Provision to assist those who are homeless is now being managed under the government’s Next Steps Accommodation Programme.

YMCA Burton will continue to provide its immediate needs and ongoing support services to those who are street homeless and to individuals who are threatened with homelessness. We will continue to provide the Housing Navigator Service, and the Homelessness Outreach Service, in partnership with East Staffordshire Borough Council.

Please contact us on the Outreach hotline number if you see someone who you think may be homeless and in need of help – 0800 130 3415.

If you would still like to volunteer this year for us here at YMCA Burton, we are seeking volunteer help in our retail shops and our food bank. Please contact us at office@burtonymca.org for further information if you are interested.
