Sanctuary Night Shelter – statistics and volunteer request

Sanctuary Night Shelter statistics:

Last year, we provided 76 people with a bed: five ladies and 71 men. Between them, they were known to have the following issues:

  • Drug or alcohol: 77%
  • Mental health issues: 55%
  • Debt: 46%
  • No significant issues: 13%

Currently, we are short of volunteers to cover the ‘sleep in duty’ night shift from 10pm to 9am and the evening shift from 6 to 10pm. If you might be able to help, please ring or email Helen  Allan, Operations manager, on 07871 999020 and at helen.allan@encs.org.uk.
