Bendigo Winter Night Shelter (BWNS) works with local churches, community groups, businesses and individuals to provide support for people who are experiencing crisis homelessness during winter in the Bendigo area. Now in its fourth year, the program will start on June 1 and run until August 31. This year, Koolamurt Park Scout Camp in Spring Gully will provide shelter for 70 of the 92 nights of winter with other Bendigo churches also offering assistance.

They are 100% volunteer organisation an are looking for more than 300 volunteers who will receive training – to lend a hand during the program. Up to 16 volunteers are needed each night to assist guests and supervise them.
