Shiloh Rotherham is a charity that offers support to adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our team of staff and volunteers work with partners to provide a non residential day service 3 days a week. We offer food, clothing, laundry, showers, training, mentoring and activities. We aim to support all of our guests to live a fulfilling and independent life.
In June 2018 it was announced that Shiloh will receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. Shiloh is only the second Rotherham charity in the last ten years to have received this award. Read more about the QAVS here.
