Cold Weather Shelter
During the cold winter months, from 1st January to 31st March, the Margins Project participates in the Caris Islington network of night shelters. Each of the seven participating shelters opens for one night per week, with our turn coming on a Thursday. Every Thursday we welcome up to 24 guests to a warm, dry shelter, along with a hot nutritious evening meal and a hot and hearty breakfast the following morning.
Guests are allowed to stay at the Cold Weather Shelter for up to four weeks. For some this is respite enough. The length of stay can however be extended where a guest is actively working to improve their situation and would benefit from a slightly longer stay.
