Our Background

Sunbury-Winter Shelter began in 2019 with five churches offering to host our guests with their venues as refuge and sanctuary.

The program was an overwhelming success with over 164 wonderfully enthusiastic volunteers attending our first training day on 4th May 2019.  It was a fantastic experience.

Over the thirteen weeks of operation (June 1 to August 31) 19 guests enjoyed the warm hospitality offered.

This year we would very much like to offer the full accommodation programme involving  three shifts a day; evening, overnight and breakfast. Everything depends on attracting enough volunteers spread across all three shifts, particularly the overnight shift where a minimum of three volunteers is needed.
