Welcome to The Shelter Trust Jersey

‘Everybody needs Shelter.’

The Shelter Trust is the largest provider of services for homeless people in Jersey. The Trust is a  member of the Association of Jersey Charities (No 072)  which offers shelter, support and a way forward for homeless people.

At present we offer accommodation for over 80 homeless people from 4 sites around St Helier and St Saviour. Our doors are open for advice and support to all those who are vulnerable or at risk of homelessness.

The Trust also provides an Outreach Service, offering food, hot drinks and support for ‘rough sleepers’ in partnership with Jersey Homeless Outreach Group.

In moving on from homelessness we provide an aftercare and resettlement service to our former residents who now live in their own homes but need some ongoing support.

The Trust runs one of the few Drunk & Incapable Units anywhere in the UK. This court diversionary project provides a safe and caring environment for islanders who are intoxicated; saving them from a criminal record and saving Jersey’s Police, Courts, Probation and Prison services considerable time and expense.

Over 400 people a year use the services of the Trust. Our job is to provide for the their needs for as short a time as is practically possible - before their successful return to independent accommodation.
