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

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:
- Sending the Robes Project some basic information about the applicant.
- The Robes Project then organises an interview.
- To refer yourself to the Robes Project you can visit one of the centres listed above.
- 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.
- When the Robes Project receives a referral form, we contact the applicant to arrange an interview.
- The Robes Project night shelter operates a limited waiting list, which means that when the waiting list is full we cannot accept new referrals.
