The King’s Lynn Winter Night Shelter is a partnership between churches, charities and agencies in King’s Lynn who are motivated by a common concern for the plight of the homeless in the borough. The project aims to provide a safe, warm place overnight for those who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets or in unsafe accommodation. We aim to take in those that come to us, as long as it is safe to do so. We believe in providing a high quality and compassionate service to our homeless guests some of whom are likely to have a range of support needs, such as alcohol dependency and mental health issues.
The shelter ran as a pilot project on Friday and Saturday nights in the winter of 2017-18 and following the success of this scheme expanded to a 7 nights a week, 5 month winter shelter (November - March) for the winters of 2018-19 and 2019-20.
We opened for the new winter season on 29th October 2020. We are dependent on the generosity of our benefactors, donors and volunteers and would love to hear from anyone who is able to support us or would like to be involved.
