Homeless people in Northampton have benefitted from advice and support from University students who stepped up to volunteer at a local shelter.

Nursing students have been helping out alongside their lecturers since February at the Pastures shelter based at the New Covenant Church in Northampton.

The shelter has been providing a warm, safe refuge for up to 10 homeless people a night during the colder months. Guests received an evening meal, a bed for the night, somewhere to do their laundry, attend to their personal hygiene and could also have breakfast there.
