Bendigo Winter Night Shelter (BWNS) works with local churches, community groups, businesses and individuals to provide support for people (our guests) who are experiencing crisis homelessness during winter in the Bendigo area.


We are a 100% volunteer organisation. Our volunteers are people who have a desire to work towards Bendigo Winter Night Shelter’s mission of supporting churches and the community to provide shelter, food and dignity to people experiencing homelessness.


We hope the community of Bendigo will see churches and the community working together to help people who are experiencing homelessness in Bendigo. While behind the scenes, BWNS will be working to connect guests with services and organisations to help them on their journey.
