A very positive experience

Glasgow Night Shelter for Destitute Asylum Seekers exists to protect people who are not only street homeless but who have no support network in the form of friends or relatives and are without recourse to public funds. Since 2011, the charity (SC047169) has provided somewhere safe and warm for destitute asylum seekers to stay overnight, 365 nights a year.

The shelter provides emergency accommodation to some of the city’s most vulnerable people. Male asylum seekers, who because of their current immigration status cannot access other homelessness services, are provided with a warm evening meal and a safe place to stay the night. The shelter is staffed by experienced support workers who help signpost the guests to health and legal services. The staff team are in turn supported by a large and committed pool of volunteers, who also stay overnight.
