Christmas Care is a Swindon charity that has provided a temporary 24 hour shelter over the Christmas period every year, since 1988. We offer hot food, personal care, company and Christmas cheer for the homeless, isolated and vulnerable people in the Swindon area.
CHRISTMAS 2020 - this year will be very different from our normal operation. We are not able to operate 24/7 but we will be opening for twice as many days, in order to dovetail in with other Swindon services for the homeless. We will still be providing hot, home-cooked meals, company and Christmas cheer.
In normal years, the project opens its doors to guests at 11am on Christmas Eve and operates round the clock for four days and nights, closing mid-morning on 28th December.
It is run entirely by volunteers and is funded purely from donations, both cash and donations in kind.
