Homeless Overnight Respite (Winter Night Shelter) 2019 / 2020
Clay Hill is taking part again in the Enfield and Haringey Homeless Respite Service under the umbrella of All People All
Places (APAP), who provides all year round support to clients. The seasonal overnight respite (winter night shelter) gives
homeless people a period of stability. The Enfield venues, based in churches, are run by volunteers and provide food,
shelter, warmth and friendship during the winter months. Each night of the week up to 12 guests are hosted by a
This winter, St Luke’s church will be the venue on Friday nights for thirteen weeks from 3rd January to 27th March 2020.
Volunteers are crucial to making it work, and donations are also welcome. If you want to help in any way, please
download the information leaflet below, and contact Peter Livermore and John Rhatigan at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
