About OWNS — Our vision & values


What we'd like to achieve

Our vision is to mitigate the harm that sleeping rough does to people's health and safety, especially during the coldest months of the year.

We aim to show the love of God to each of our guests through the way we welcome and care for them, although we do not push religion at our guests.


What matters to us and why we do it

In the belief that God wants us all to live fulfilled lives, we put a high priority on respecting our guests.

We work within a Christian ethos, and while not excluding guests or volunteers of other faiths or none, have the expectation that they will respect and abide by our values.

We acknowledge that we share with all other major faiths, and people of no faith, a desire to help some of the most vulnerable in our society.
