Local Practice: Southport’s Cold Weather Shelter Now Open

Posted by natalie_pearson November 06, 2019

From November 1st 2019 - March 2020 New Start will be providing a Cold Weather Provision for rough sleepers in the Southport area of Sefton. The service is funded using MHCLG’s Cold Weather Fund.

The service will run alongside New Start’s current Sit-Up provision located at Hatherlow Hall, which is situated directly behind 40-42 Leyland Road PR9 9JQ. The service can be accessed at 8pm Monday to Friday and at 6pm Saturday and Sunday, with follow up support being provided on site the following day until 12.30pm.

The Sit-Up service runs 365 nights per year. It is a safe service for rough sleepers to sleep in, and a place for them to access support from staff who are trained in supporting vulnerable people.

The cold weather shelter runs from November 2019 - March 2020.
