Leighton Linslade Homeless Service was established in 2006 by a group of volunteers as a pilot exercise based out of 2 portacabins in the grounds of Hockliffe Baptist Church which helped them identify that there was a need in the local area. Volunteers from the community and local churches worked together to ensure the provision of emergency shelter for those who were facing the devastating experience of homelessness and soon it was running all year round between the hours of 10pm and 8am.
