NightLite - Volunteer Care Team - Street Pastors
Drawn from local churches, Street Pastor volunteers patrol the streets in the centre of Cambridge from 10pm to 4am each Friday and Saturday night to help those in difficulty without judgement or discrimination. Well trained and fully equipped, the Street Pastors aim to provide a listening ear, practical help and Christian concern for all people, whether upset or sick or needing someone to talk to. Our sister project Nightlite (based in St Columbas Church Downing Street) also provides a safe place for people to wait, recover, find a listening ear or just chill out.        Website: Cambridge Street Pastors

Jimmy's Night Shelter
Jimmy's Night Shelter is heavily dependant on a wonderful volunteer team who support staff, serve meals, clear up, help make our guests comfortable and generally keep everything running smoothly. We are currently having a hard time filling volunteer shifts. Would you like to try out a shift or two, to both help us out and to give you a greater insight into the work of Jimmy's? And of course we'd be delighted if you were able to join us on a more permanent basis, working with us in a way that's convenient to you: weekly, fortnightly or monthly turns.     

Wintercomfort

Wintercomfort based on Victoria Avenue is the daycentre providing a range of support services to the homeless of Cambridge.
