Glasgow Night Shelter for Destitute Asylum Seekers

Glasgow Night Shelter is a registered charity (SC047169) and the only organisation in Scotland providing emergency accommodation to destitute asylum seekers.

We are still operating during the Covid-19 outbreak – for more information on how we’ve adapted our service and how you can help to support this vital work please visit our Covid-19 page.

We currently have capacity for 24 men at any one time, but we know that there are many more who require our service. Up to 150 individuals are made destitute by the asylum system in Glasgow each year.


The charity was set up in 2011 to respond to a humanitarian crisis. We provide emergency accommodation 365 days a year as well as hot food and signposting for those asylum seekers who have been forced into destitution due to their immigration status: they have no right to work, no recourse to public funds (e.g. benefits), and no access to statutory homelessness services.


The Shelter is staffed by an experienced team and who are in turn supported by our incredible volunteers.
