Admission Criteria

BWNS is for men and women (aged 25 and over) who have nowhere else to stay. There are 10 bed spaces per night. Every guest must be referred in advance in order to have a bed.

Guests will be required to undergo a risk assessment before being admitted to the BWNS. For everyone’s safety, anyone who shows threatening or disruptive behaviour will be asked to leave; guests are admitted on the basis that they accept the BWNS rules.
