Homeless and Need Help?

Our night shelter runs between November and April each year, and helps up to 15 guests.

The Robes Project is not a direct access night shelter. To stay at the Robes Project night shelter an application is made through one of the Robes Project referral agencies.

WHAT is a referral and HOW can I refer myself?
A referral is like an application. All of the organisations above can apply for a place at the Robes Project on behalf of their clients. This involves:

  1. Sending the Robes Project some basic information about the applicant.
  2. The Robes Project then organises an interview.
  3. To refer yourself to the Robes Project you can visit one of the centres listed above.
  4. There you can ask to speak to an advice worker and ask about the Robes Project night shelter. If you both think that the night shelter is a suitable option, a referral form is completed.
  5. When the Robes Project receives a referral form, we contact the applicant to arrange an interview.
  6. The Robes Project night shelter operates a limited waiting list, which means that when the waiting list is full we cannot accept new referrals.
