Welcome to the website for the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter. You can find out all about us through the menu on the left...

….but first, please allow me to ask the question….where did YOU sleep last night? A park, shop doorway, derelict building, public toilets, burnt out car, bus shelter, churchyard, tent, Police cells, the woods, a friend’s sofa?

These were some of the answers we received from our guests who shared the hospitality and help offered by the first Ipswich Winter Night Shelter last year. 

The answers to the question, “Why”? aren’t for discussion here, but each one revealed that for them, homelessness was the end result of something having  gone wrong, or not being addressed. So, as we did last year, we will be working with the many and varied local agencies that are dealing with the sometimes complex issues that lay at the root of homelessness as we once again offer both Hospitality…and Hope!
