Getting Help

We can usually provide food and drink from the Night Shelter in the mornings for those living rough on Chelmsford’s streets and in the evenings at weekends.

Emergency accommodation

From November to March our Winter Project provides beds each night for a limited number of people who would otherwise be forced to sleep rough.

Beds are generally allocated on a “first come, first served” basis.

To get more information speak to one of the Night Shelter staff during its normal opening hours.

To apply for a short-term place in the Night Shelter you must contact our Night Shelter (01245 252410). Because of the demand we cannot guarantee that space will be available but we will record your details in case a suitable bed becomes vacant.
