Greenwich Winter Night Shelter (GWNS) is a local charity which is based in Eltham and provides warmth, emergency accommodation and support for the homeless in Greenwich. During their stay, guests receive specialist support and advice to move them on into more permanent housing solutions and work towards breaking the cycle of homelessness. GWNS relies heavily on the generosity, hard work and dedication of our volunteers and we’re always looking for more people to join us! All information about how to get involved is on our website, or you can email
