Emergency homeless shelter in Brighton to open every weekend

AN EMERGENCY shelter for rough sleepers will open at weekends to plug gaps in services.

The Severe Weather Emergency Protocol, known as SWEP is triggered when there are severe weather warnings and the temperature drops to a “feels like” freezing level.

The open drop in service for up to 35 rough sleepers is currently operating out of Brighton Town Hall in Bartholomew Square, until a more suitable venue is found.

By opening at weekends, Brighton and Hove City Council would provide a service to fill gaps when day centres are not open.
