Can WHF Help you?

Wellingborough Homeless Forum (WHF) was set up a few years ago to open a Wellingborough Night Shelter. Members wanted to help alleviate the problems that homelessness can cause.

Since 2017, WHF has run the roving winter Wellingborough night shelter. This providing an evening meal, bed & breakfast during November to March to provide relief to those on the streets during the coldest part of the year. WHF now has access to a permanent winter night shelter on the Embankment.

Admittance to the Wellingborough night shelter will only be given to guests who have registered in advance. Guests will need to be approved and accepted the Night Shelter rules. There is no obligation to stay in the Night Shelter every night, however registration will give you that choice whether you wish to come along, or not, on any given night.

We operate a first come, first served policy whilst we do not plan on turning anyone away, we apologise in advance that on extremely rare occasions, it is possible that we may not be able to offer you a bed if we have reached capacity.
