Everyone deserves a safe place to rest their head, and your generous donations could provide just that for someone sleeping on the street. If you would like to donate to our cause, please read on.

Fundraising is the bread and butter of the Bus Shelter MK. We rely on our exposure to raise money for the people who depend on us. Follow the link to our fundraising page to support our cause.

If you would like to donate your time instead, we have a range of interesting volunteer opportunities. Please fill in our Volunteer Form to find out more.

Welcome to The Bus Shelter



Sleep is just the beginning. Rebuilding lives takes a number of steps, but it can be hard to get back on the ladder without a safe place to rest your head. That's where we come in.

How We Can Help

We believe in the power of people to make a difference in their communities, one day at a time. Our volunteers have already seen and felt the impact that they can have on the lives of those who find themselves homeless.

  • We enjoyed shepherd's pie and bread and butter pudding, followed by guitar playing and singing.what a lovely bunch of guys we have on the bus. Looking forward to next time

  • I look forward to my weekly volunteer evening as the guys are always great company. We talk about their week, their hopes, and their gripes and always have a really good laugh. I feel privileged to spend time with them and always leave feeling valued and appreciated.

  • When I started volunteering I thought I had an idea of what homelessness was like. The Bus Shelter MK has changed that view. The guests' backgrounds, skill sets and outlooks all vary and it's a pleasure to play a small part in their journeys.

  • Without The Bus Shelter MK's support, I don't want to imagine where I would be now

  • I always go home feeling privileged to have shared time with them.

  • I was touched by the way they all rallied around when a homeless man turned up looking for a blanket. They immediately invited him to dinner and made him feel welcomed, showing real concern for his welfare

Welcome to the Bus Shelter MK, a place of shelter and support for Milton Keynes’ street homeless who are prepared to turn their situation around and re-integrate themselves into mainstream society. Homelessness can hit anyone, and it doesn’t discriminate. Most of us are only a few pay packets away from losing our own homes.

Run by a group of ordinary citizens like yourself and relying on fundraising and generous donations of money and time to operate, our mission is to home and help our residents back into lives where they can look after themselves and avoid sleeping on the streets. Giving them a warm place to sleep and a belly full of food is only the start of our process.
