Welcome to Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter Website (WNSMK)

WNSMK provides supervised overnight accommodation to homeless and vulnerable people who would otherwise be rough sleeping during the extreme winter months between early December and and mid-March each year. It works in partnership with several Milton Keynes churches that provide their facilities free of charge. A large team of volunteers from across the city come together to cook nutritious meals and provide a friendly safe environment each evening.

WNSMK is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee and is supported by a number of companies, organisations and individuals with grants, donations, benefit entitlements and ‘in kind’ support.

Our vision:

‘We aim to relieve poverty, distress and homelessness and help homeless people rebuild their lives’


We do this by providing:

  • Temporary emergency accommodation
  • Pastoral care to understand issues
  • Links to support agencies
  • Support to find permanent accommodation
  • Pathways to employment


Guest quote:

‘I don’t know where I would have gone. A mate's house or a couch somewhere.’
