The Bus Shelter MK
Who we are
A route out of homelessness.
The Bus Shelter MK provides shelter and support for up to 10 people at a time who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets of Milton Keynes.
We provide a temporary home to approximately 30 people a year, people experiencing homelessness who would otherwise face an almost impossible task in getting off the streets. We support our guests to regain their health, find work, sort out ID documents and benefits and move into a sustainable home. We often continue to offer support for a few months after they have moved into their new home to make sure they have settled and to help with any unexpected challenges.
We are preparing to move to a new long term home which will give everyone their own bedroom as well as kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities. Our guests dogs will still be welcome, of course!
This is a major undertaking for our small charity costing us over £150,000. This follows months of extra costs and significantly reduced donations due to Covid-19 .... so we could really do with your help right now to help cover our bills!
With your help The Bus Shelter MK can continue to provide safe, warm nights and hopeful days. We are changing lives - will you help us?
