Rough Sleeper Severe Weather Provision

Information received this morning from Northamptonshire County Council.

Rough Sleeper Severe Weather Provision

This facility is only for rough sleepers currently in the East Northamptonshire District. All Local Authorities are required to operate a rough sleeper provision therefore rough sleepers in other areas should contact their local council for assistance.
Due to the forecast of a severe storm for this area from Saturday to Sunday, the Council has activated it's Severe Weather Scheme for rough sleepers for Saturday and Sunday night. This is put into place for periods of adverse weather. We will ensure that everyone has access to shelter during adverse weather, regardless of the normal homelessness eligibility rules.
If you are aware of anyone who is facing the prospect of rough sleeping during this severe weather period please call the Rushden Night Shelter first on 01933 353946 or the council's housing options team on 0345 600 50 50. If you are calling during the night, you will be directed to an out-of-hours telephone number.

The scheme will remain open until Monday morning.
