Churches Winter Night Shelters Return for 2015/16

Southend Churches preparing to open their doors to homeless, and they need your help.

Southend Borough Council (SBC) has an obligation to provide shelter from the elements for all Southend-based rough sleepers when the temperature is forecast to be below 0oC for 3 consecutive nights. In the past, they have done this with the help of e.g. HARP [The Southend Homeless Action Resource Project] and by using local hostels, hotels and B&BS.

In the late summer of 2011, SBC approached the churches in Southend (through Love Southend) to see if any church buildings could be made available alongside the provision listed above. Three churches were able to provide a shelter one night a week each and helped over 100 guests by providing an evening meal, a warm bed, and breakfast.
