How long would I need to host for?

We have several different hosting options available if you have a spare room:

Weekend hosting is primarily used to bridge the gap between weekdays when the night shelter is open and free to use. New hosts will almost always start off as ‘weekend-hosts’.

Emergency hosting typically involves female destitute asylum seekers being placed in host families due to their initial reservation in approaching the charity and using the night shelter.

Long-term hosting usually entails more familiar clients staying with a host from 4 weeks to a maximum of 6 months. During this time, the client would receive support from ASSIST in proceeding with their asylum case.
