You can support OWNS in a number of different ways

How to donate money

We are totally voluntarily aided, so donations are greatly appreciated.

Regular giving by standing order is very helpful for us as we can plan ahead. If you pay income tax or capital gains tax you can make a gift of 25% by completing a gift aid form.

Giving Online

You can also make a one-off or regular donation through Virgin Money.

If you wish to send a cheque, please make it out to:

"Oxford Winter Night Shelter" and send it to:

  • The Secretary OWNS, c/o St Michael at the North Gate, Cornmarket, OX1 3EY


If you wish to see how we use our money, our financial statement is included on the Charity Commission website: www.charitycommission.gov.uk. We are Registered Charity Number 1175750.

How to donate "in kind"

We have limited storage for goods, and although we receive these with gratitude, can you please consult the website where we will put out requests from time to time, rather than bringing items directly.

You may wish to contact one of the local venues to see if they need any items.
