Winter weather warnings

December 6th 2016

The Met Office has said to warned of high winds, very low temperatures and has floods across the UK as winter approaches.

With night-time temperatures expected to reach below freezing throughout the next few months, it’s important to know where you can get shelter this winter.

Local authorities across the UK are committed to providing emergency beds to those in need during times of high risk weather, like storms and cold snaps, as part of the Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP).

As a miniumum, emergency shelters should be offered to all when the temperature falls below zero for three nights in a row.

Homeless Link have called on local authorities to think about the need for additional places and street work in all bad weather including high winds and heavy rain.

Unlike some night shelters, SWEP beds are available to anybody in need. Contact your local authority if you are concerned.
