Southend Winter Night Shelter

Every winter a group of churches in Southend-on-Sea in Essex set up a night shelter service for rough sleepers in the area. The service provides those in need with a hot meal, new clothes and a bed for the night and it is ran entirely on donations and by volunteers. In 2018 we produced this film as part of a drive to attract more volunteers to support. As a direct result of the video volunteer applications increased by 500% that year.
