Rough sleeping

Each year, the council and partners operate a Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) to find accommodation for people who would otherwise be sleeping rough in periods of particularly cold weather. This includes additional temporary hostel beds. The arrangements operate when temperatures are predicted to be zero centigrade or below for three nights in a row.

If you are worried about someone you think might be sleeping rough call St Mungo's Compass Centre on 944 0581 or contact the national rough sleeping helpline at 0300 500 0914 or visit the Street Link website.

Vulnerable and elderly people

If you're concerned about anybody in your area please contact Care Direct – telephone 0117 922 2700 during office hours. Out of hours and weekend emergencies contact Emergency Duty Team 01454 615 165.
