Glasgow Night Shelter depends entirely on donations from our supporters in order to survive.

The men staying at the night shelter are, by law, not allowed ‘any recourse to public funds’. As a result the night shelter cannot receive any funding from any government sources or the Scottish Parliament or the local council.
Currently our running costs come to about £40,000 a year which includes the wages of two part-time co-ordinators. With the help of our supporters and other local charities who often bring in food, clothing and equipment to the shelter, the actual running costs of the shelter are kept to about £1,000 a month (excluding wages.)
From that money, every month, we provide over 500 hot, nourishing, evening meals, pay for heating and lighting costs, provide food for breakfast and to take away for lunch for the 15 men staying at the shelter evey night.
Since we began we estimate that we have provided over 5,475 bed spaces each year for homeless asylum seekers who otherwise would be forced to sleep rough on the streets of Glasgow.
