For the last seven nights, we have provided 51 overnight bedspaces for 8 rough sleepers in our centre as part of Exeter City Council’s Severe Weather Emergency Provision.  In partnership with Exeter’s Street Homeless Outreach Team, we agree which clients are best suited to available accommodation providers and then ensure an offer is made to known rough sleepers in the city.  Not only does this vital service help save lives it also has proved a useful tool in encouraging entrenched rough sleepers to consider being accommodated.
