More About The Organisation
The Cold Weather Group (CWG) was set up in 1991 as an alliance of groups and individuals with the aim of increasing co-ordination and provision for homeless people sleeping rough in Bristol during the winter months. Registered as a charity in 1999, they are dependent for their income on donations, service fees and grants from charitable trusts.
They welcome volunteer support to the night centre for rough sleepers. Volunteers are given basic training for in such topics as Listening Skills, Confidentiality and Boundaries, Challenging Behaviour, Food Hygiene, Dealing with Addiction and Mental Health Awareness.
