We’re really excited to be a part of the severe weather emergency provision this year, providing support to those without somewhere to live throughout the winter months.

Our team will be part of a wide ranging support offer to not only provide somewhere safe & warm for people to rest, but also help them into local support services to get any help they might need.

Sharon, Tylah and Deb will work to coordinate the Severe Weather Emergency Provision beds across Blackburn with Darwen. This includes the pods at Shadsworth and beds at the Salvation Army and Bonam Court.

We are keen to ensure a coordinated approach and are aware that many groups are asking for donations for the homeless. If you have any items you would like to donate, please get in touch and we can ensure any donations are handled in line with COVID safety guidance. Meals are provided as part of the offer, so there is no requirement for additional food.
