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

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.

“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)

Please note the Night Shelter is now closed. We will be open again in December 2015.

We can now accept donations online via Virgin Money Giving! Please see the Donate page for more info.
