How Shelterbus Works

Rotary ShelterBus works in partnership with local non-profit organisations to provide a range of care services to our beneficiaries. It all starts with a bus. First, our parent organisation, Rotary Club Birmingham Breakfast, will procure and renovate our ShelterBuses to meet all necessary comfort and safety standards.

Once the ShelterBus is road-ready, we’ll partner with a local homeless charity to provide day-to-day care and administration whilst our bus is on the move. Every day, the ShelterBus will travel throughout Greater Birmingham, ensuring that all areas of our community are served.

Our ShelterBus will be free as long as our tenants are in a full-time job or fulfil voluntary community services arranged daily by our team. It’s important that we give back to the community full-circle, whilst instilling skills that can help our tenants turn around their personal situations.

Throughout the year, we’ll partner with a range of local charitable and for-profit organisations to provide food, health care and career advice to our beneficiaries. Anyone is welcome to partner with us and volunteer their time or resources.


Our ShelterBus Tenants

To ensure we serve those most vulnerable to rough sleeping and homelessness, we’ll work hand-in-hand with the local council, acting as a referral network for those seeking advice and refuge in a time of need.

Our partners and volunteers will be notified of pre-arranged arrivals, whilst working with the council to identify and arrange appropriate refuge for those potential tenants that come to Rotary ShelterBus first. In addition to accommodation, every tenant will be provided a hot meal, shower facilities, as well as an initial consultation to determine necessary care resources.
