About us

Birmingham Christmas Shelter (formerly Birmingham Open Christmas) is a registered charity which has been operating for over 40 years, providing an essential service during a time when many other facilities are closed.

Our doors open 24 hours a day during Christmas week and, typically, we welcome between 50 and 150 guests on a daily basis, providing hot meals and drinks, entertainment and a safe and warm place to sleep.

Our aim is to provide food, warmth, shelter and friendship to our guests, regardless of colour, gender, race, religion or sexual orientation.  

We depend entirely on donations and volunteers.
