Male night shelter

Milton Keynes Council has opened purpose-built night accommodation above the former bus station at Station Square offering somewhere safe to stay for those who need overnight crisis accommodation. The facility operates 7-days a week and accommodates up to 18 people at a time who find themselves with nowhere to go that night. The service will have access to showers and washing facilities, with staff based onsite to provide essential support. An evening service will also operate to offer food and support prior to an overnight stay, offering a warm and supportive environment. The accommodation will be available to those who are over 18-years of age, and will be available to males or those who identify as male, or are transitioning into being male, who need it.
