Enfield Winter Night Shelter 2020 / 2021 Last winter, the night shelter came to an abrupt halt in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic put the country into lockdown. Little did we all realise at the time just how much of a long-lasting impact the pandemic would have, and continues to have, on all our lives. It seems that nothing is likely to be quite the same again, and so it is with the night shelter. Government guidance issued in September 2020 confirmed what was expected. The provision of night shelters in church buildings is discouraged because dormitory-style sleeping arrangements are unsafe. All People All Places (APAP) has been busy this year, responding to the pandemic and planning new services to help the growing numbers of people becoming homeless in Enfield and Haringey. There will be night shelters this winter, but they will be in one location in each borough rather than being hosted in different churches/synagogues each night. In Enfield, APAP has managed to rent a 5/6-bedroom property for a shelter this winter, which will start on 7 January 2021. Please download the note about the Enfield Winter Night Shelter below, which explains what is happening and how you can help with either volunteering, food, or donations. It would be much appreciated if you could let us know if you are able to help in anyway, so please contact Peter Livermore and John Rhatigan at stlukesshelter@gmail.com APAP is a Christian registered charity and their mission is to ‘break the cycle of homelessness’ and not just provide quick- fix solutions. They give a personalised service, building people to increase self-confidence, as they walk them through the myriad of services that are often difficult to interact with. Many have ‘no recourse to public funds’ so are destitute with no rights to income, work or housing. Developing pathway plans with each client is key to address their particular set of issues. This includes advice and practical support to find accommodation, gain benefits, access healthcare and gain skills to aid sustainable living.
