HOSTS, which is a collaboration of voluntary agencies and Swindon Borough Council, is behind the Temporary Winter Housing Provision. The facility will open the 3rd January 2018 until mid-March to offer support and accommodation for 12 to 18 individuals with the aim of helping them progress to the next stage of their lives.

The provision will be open from 6.30pm to 7.30am and there will be evening, overnight and morning shifts 7 days a week for the duration. Evening shifts would be 6.00pm – 10.00pm, overnight would be 10.00pm – 7.00am and mornings would be 7.00am – 8.30am (9am on Sundays) and would involve help with preparing the venue, cooking and clearing and interacting with the residents.

Full training is provided. If you would like to volunteer, further information is available online at or alternatively please contact Rachel Holley
