The Spring of Hope Women's Night Shelter offers emergency temporary accommodation to vulnerable and homeless women. We provide a warm and safe environment where vulnerable women are able to seek our help confidentially and without fear.


What we do

  • Provide emergency accommodation for up to 12 women 5 nights a week, on a first come first served basis.•
  • Provide emotional and practical support to women with complex needs and fleeing from abuse, relationship breakdown and prostitution;
  • Help women from all walks of life, often with issues ranging from domestic violence, mental health problems, family and marital breakdown and substance abuse;
  • Signpost and support clients to other practical and emotional support including counselling, placement within short-term or long-term housing, accompaniment to court and medical appointments.


Essential Information

  • We can accommodate up to 12 women. The night shelter doors open at 10pm on a first come first served basis. Individuals can self-refer but if you are an agency referring someone to the shelter, it is helpful for the team to be informed.
  • Doors are closed at midnight. We are unable to store belongings or reserve beds for individuals.
  • The shelter is solely run by female staff and volunteers in order to effectively engage with the women who come for help. 

Opening Times
We are open five nights every week - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
