Shelter Week 2020 - COVID 19 Update
The Board of Trustees have been keeping a close eye on the pandemic and the potential impact on shelter week 2020. It is with a heavy heart we have to share the news with you that the board of trustees has taken the difficult decision that we cannot run shelter week for 2020.
On 3 July, the Government advised that all night shelters offering accommodation in communal settings should remain closed and given the latest restrictions, that position has not changed due to the health risks they present
The safety of our guests and volunteers is our utmost priority and despite best efforts, we cannot see a way to operate shelter week without compromising that principle.
Our aim is to offer food, warmth, shelter and companionship to homeless and lonely people in the Birmingham area, over the Christmas period.
Our doors are open to all, irrespective of gender, colour, race, religion or sexual orientation.
