Kingston Churches Action Against Homelessness (KCAH) morning shelter opened this week.
The aim of the shelter, which launched on January 14, is to provide a place to go in the time between the closure of night shelters and the opening of other daytime services.
As an open access shelter, it has no curfew and people can come and go as they please so long as they give their name on arrival.
KCAH night shelter coordinator Sophie Mayor said: “Kingston has done very well with open access. We’re one of the few open access shelters in the country.”
