Caerphilly Borough Churches Night Shelter has been running since January 2013 and is planning to open again from December this year.
Caerphilly Night shelter is a registered charity and is the churches providing overnight accommodation to people who are homeless and sleeping rough.Why?
The reason we began to look at the idea of a church night
shelter is because in Caerphilly Borough there is no emergency
accommodation provision for rough sleepers at present.
The Churches Night Shelter fills in the gap in providing safety
and refuge for those who do not have the option of temporary or permanent accommodation.
We offer a safe, warm and secure place that is welcoming to
anyone over the age of 18 who otherwise would be forced to sleep rough in Caerphilly Borough.
We work closely with organisations in and around Caerphilly
Borough – particularly the Housing Advice Centre, Supporting
people and the Police.
