Homelessness, Rough Sleeper Outreach and Winter Night Shelter

Reducing homelessness in Milton Keynes is a key priority and we are doing everything we can to help those most in need and keep them off the streets

The Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes offers year-round support to rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerable people including those who may be at risk of homelessness. They provide emergency accommodation from November-March and provide the following services from their centre, Unity Park Station (the Old Bus Station on Elder Gate) all year round:

  • Welfare support for rough sleepers including help with benefits and finding accommodation
  • Free hot meals and food supplies to take away (Mondays-Fridays 10am-2pm)
  • Support via Community Clubs on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings (awaiting reopening once local restrictions lift)
  • Showers and laundry facilities
  • Access to other support services such as therapy, counselling and life skills
  • Pathways to employment

An initial referral (or self-referral) should be made to the welfare team:
