Welcome to the website for Selig (Suffolk) Trust, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registered charity number 1157245) within which the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter sits.

“What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families.”

Isaiah Chapter 58 vs 7, (The Message Version)

But firstly, where did you sleep last night? A park bench, a shop doorway or a derelict building? These are some of the answers we received from guests who have stayed in the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter during previous years.

The Ipswich Winter Night Shelter is now closed for this season. We will re-open at the beginning of December 2016.

Selig Suffolk, the charity under which IWNS runs, is advertising for a Support Worker. You can find more details about the position and how to apply here:
