Lichfield emergency night shelter
Lichfield emergency night shelter, which launched on 2 February and is running every day until the end of March 2019, is for people who are sleeping rough in Lichfield.
The shelter rotates round five churches in the city, and offers a hot evening meal, a warm bed and breakfast to up to eight street homeless people a night.
The shelter is open from 8pm (although it might be slightly later on some nights) and guests will be able to come in up until 9pm. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.
Lichfield's emergency night shelter is a Churches Together Lichfield project, and is a joint initiative by churches and other faiths, Lichfield District Council and the local community. More than 70 volunteers have offered their services for free to make the night shelter a reality this winter.
The night shelter has received funding from the government’s Cold Weather Fund, which Lichfield District Council has match funded.
