RENEW Men's Shed & Swindon Night Shelter

Representative: Dawn Prosser

What is RENEW?

RENEW is part of the UK Men In Sheds Association, and is a place to have fun, share or learn skills and knowledge with like-minded people and gain a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. Guests & volunteers love renewing, repairing and re-using materials which would otherwise go to landfill and currently have sessions in woodwork, upholstery and upcycling. The organisation also runs a community foodshare in partnership with Swindon Night Shelter and Penhill Community church.

What is Swindon Night Shelter?

Swindon Night Shelter is a Christian homeless charity working across the town. Its aim is to try to break the cycle of homelessness focusing on accommodation, employment, health and well-being, fun and fulfilment. Based in Queens Drive, the day centre, the Haven, is open from 9.30 to 4pm. The organisation also runs a temporary winter housing project at the Haven from January to March and a shop called The Hub, in Clive Parade, open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.


There are many different types of business referral groups in Swindon, offering a variety of opportunities at different times of the day. How do you know which one is right for you? Well you don’t, you’ve just got to try them out and see which one you feel you have a good rapport with, have the same values as and that will provide the right level of support and growth for your business.
