Shelter for Homeless People
Together in Barnet's aim is to tackle homelessness in the London Borough of Barnet. The charity runs a night shelter within the local community to house rough sleepers from October to March each year. Together in Barnet works closely with the day centre, Homeless Action in Barnet, to provide for the needs of the most vulnerable in the Barnet community.
The Winter Night Shelter
“Your pure human kindness is a joy to behold.”
One of our guests wrote a beautiful poem to say ‘thank you’ to the shelter at Barnet.
Night Shelter Donations
Our Night Shelter costs £5.40 per guest per night to run over the coldest months of the year. We rely on donations and volunteers to keep the shelter running. Can you give some of your money or time to help keep it running? You could even donate on behalf of a loved one as a wonderful gift.
"The best Christmas I have had in 25 years."
NIGHT Shelter Guest
Volunteers play a key role at Together in Barnet. The Night Shelter is run by a network of volunteers, who cook food, greet our guests, and make sure everyone’s safe and well looked after. We are always looking for people to volunteer at the Night Shelter, or help us with fundraising. We offer full training to all our volunteers, and a rewarding environment in which to give something back to the community.
“It was through my work with the Homeless in Barnet that I discovered the joy of volunteering and the therapeutic benefits of a community space, in the London Borough where I was raised.”
James, Shelter Coordinator
