Grace Hosting

What does Grace Hosting offer?

The Grace Hosting project was previously known as Short Stop. It links volunteers who have a spare room in their house, with asylum seekers and refugees who have nowhere to stay.

Grace Hosting volunteers provide a hot meal and a safe place to sleep for people who have nowhere else to go.

Guests may spend a few nights, a few weeks, or (in a few very particular circumstances) may go on to stay longer than this.

Last year, our volunteers helped to provide a meal and a bed for the night more than 3,800 times.
