Application For Night Shelter Volunteering
We are working with other agencies who are concerned about people who, for a variety of reasons, find themselves sleeping rough in Bolton. With the help of Bolton Council, Bolton Homeless Alliance is bringing services together to provide a range of support that reduces the risk of harm and supports rough-sleepers into accommodation.
For our part, Urban Outreach aims to open a temporary emergency night shelter through the coldest months of this each winter (October – April). This temporary facility is based at the former Central Baptist Church on Snowden Street, Bolton. BL1 2PU.
Our vision is that no-one, whatever their background or circumstances, should have to endure the desperation and indignity of living on the streets of Bolton at any time.
To this end, we need volunteers to help run the emergency night shelter on a rota basis. If you have volunteered previously for this project, you won’t need to complete this form again unless any of your personal details or circumstances have changed.
Please complete the form which will automatically and confidentially be emailed to us. If you prefer you can complete a paper copy here.
