Welcome to the website for the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter - one of the projects under the banner of the Selig (Suffolk) Trust (registered charity number 1157245).

“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” Isaiah Chapter 58 vs 7, (The Message Version)

Where did you sleep last night?

Guests who have stayed in the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter may have been sleeping on a park bench, in a shop doorway or in a derelict building. We provide them with a safe and warm place to sleep during the coldest months of the year.

The Ipswich Winter Night Shelter will re-open on Thursday 8th December 2016 and it will run every night until Sunday 12th March 2017.

We have plenty of donated clothes and other items at the moment. If we do need more donated items we will let you know via our Facebook page.       


Thank you for supporting us by volunteering, donating, praying and encouraging. We do not receive any Government or council funding so we rely entirely on donations.  

You can support our work by making a donation via a cheque, a bank transfer, a standing order or online (via Virgin Money Giving). Visit the Donate page for more information.
