Provision for rough sleepers in cold weather

During the cold weather Hackney Council has made provision for rough sleepers so that no one spends one night outside without shelter in freezing weather.

The Council, in partnership with homelessness charities St Mungos and Providence Row, provides emergency shelters in Hackney for rough sleepers on any night where the temperature falls below zero.

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, or you are sleeping rough yourself, you can contact StreetLink online http://www.streetlink.org.uk/ or by phone by calling 0300 500 0914 for help, support and advice.
