Unity in the Community played a major part in setting up the Glasgow Night Shelter for destitute asylum seekers in December 2011.
Since then the Glasgow Night Shelter has provided somewhere warm and safe to destitute asylum seekers and other migrants who because of their immigration status cannot access the normal homeless services in the city.
Located in a church hall in the west end of Glasgow the night shelter provides a hot meal and somewhere to stay for up to 15 men every night, including Christmas Day and Hogmanay. Unity still supports the night shelter by providing food from our World Cafe food project and collecting sleeping bags and blankets when they are donated to our charity shops.
Many Unity volunteers and supporters volunteer in the night shelter.
