St Pauls Night Shelter

I visited St Pauls Night shelter this week to see what services they offer to the homeless in Bournemouth.

I was invited into their day room, where I met some of the people that use the centre. The staff were very patient assisting with lots of issues whilst i was there.

The shelter provides hot meals, use of a computer, showers, toilets and washing machines. The centre is very calm, relaxed and friendly.

Upstairs the Night shelter operates in the evenings, where rooms are available for a cost of £2.50.

The rooms are a lot better than many of the bedsits locally! The people who use the service are often living chaotic lifestyles and many have drug problems so there is an emphasis on harm reduction, giving people information on staying safe.
