About the Glasgow Night Shelter for Destitute Asylum Seekers

The night shelter was set up in 2011 to provide emergency accommodation support for destitute asylum seekers in Glasgow. It is a registered Scottish charity.

Our main objective is to provide emergency overnight accommodation for destitute asylum seekers, non-EU migrants and other people with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) who are blocked from accessing statutory homeless services due to their immigration status.

The shelter operates from 8:00pm to 8:00am, 365 nights a year, providing a hot evening meal and breakfast, a safe and warm place to sleep, and practical advice and information to empower our guests to move forward with their lives.

Located in the Tradeston area of Glasgow and run by a small staff team and many incredible volunteers, the night shelter offers an essential lifeline for one of the most marginalised, disempowered and vulnerable groups of people in society.

Our guests are at the sharp end of the government’s hostile environment policies; a set of cruel tactics designed to force people into destitution, leave them with no recourse to public funds, no right to work to support themselves and absolutely no access to statutory homelessness services. Glasgow Night Shelter for Destitute Asylum Seekers provides our guests’ one and only means of accommodation support.

Glasgow Night Shelter for Destitute Asylum Seekers is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) number SC047169.
