We are continuing to operate our our Nightshelter but following guidance, we have reduced the number of bed spaces to six in order to be able to apply social distancing and minimise the risk to both clients and staff. We are working very closely with the local authority and other local charities and are determined that no one should sleep rough, during this difficult time.
The Nightshelter is our front-line residential house. It serves people who would otherwise have nowhere else to sleep for the night.
The men and women who stay at the Nightshelter come from a wide variety of backgrounds. They may have drug or alcohol related problems, they may have suffered violence, or have recently come out of prison. Some find themselves homeless as a result of divorce or family break up.
50 Clarendon Street, Bedford MK41 7SJ
Open 6.30pm – 9.00am
“It’s so exciting to see long-term rough sleepers get and keep their own homes. I love seeing people realise they are worth more than the life they had been leading.”— Rough Sleeper's Outreach Worker
Our aim is to make the Nightshelter as homely and comfortable as possible. We use a large residential house for our premises which provides accommodation for up to 18 people each night.
We serve hot meals each evening and breakfast in the morning. The Nightshelter also provides a free laundry service to all the residents and visitors.
The Nightshelter is a ‘direct access’ facility and no referrals are required.
