Glasgow City Mission

Emergency accommodation for people who are homeless

In autumn 2017, HOPE Foundation donated £10,000 towards the costs of the Glasgow Winter Night Shelter which operated from November 2017 to March 2018. Those using the shelter often have complex health issues and wounds. The Glasgow City Mission team were able to introduce guests to health workers and nursing staff on site who were able to treat them quickly, bringing down barriers and building relationships with those most in need:

“Glasgow City Mission is delighted to accept this generous donation from the HOPE Foundation which will be used towards providing a lifeline emergency accommodation service for rough sleepers in Glasgow. Not only does the Glasgow Winter Night Shelter provide a safe place for people to sleep out of harm’s way and from the harsh winter weather, crucially, it provides access to healthcare interventions that often would not otherwise be accessed. The HOPE Foundation’s donation will mean that some of Glasgow’s most vulnerable and chaotic individuals can receive the vital healthcare that they need, and ultimately save lives. We are most grateful and look forward to working closely with the Foundation going forward”.
