SWEP activated - 06 December 2022

Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) has been activated in Arun from 6 December 2022 due to the predicted drop in temperature from the Met Office. Anyone who is rough sleeping in Arun will have access to a bed for the period of SWEP should they wish to access one.

To access SWEP, clients need to attend Stonepillow’s hub at Glenlogie in Bognor Regis at 6pm on the night they wish to be offered a bed. Our partner agencies and outreach teams will be out notifying all rough sleepers known to us to ensure they are aware of this offer. Clients based in Littlehampton who may struggle to get to Bognor Regis, should attend the Turning Tides hub by 11am each morning,  or contact the Housing Options Team after 11am and no later than 4pm for help to get to Bognor Regis for the evening.

If you see a rough sleeper please report this to our outreach team by submitting a SteetLink referral https://www.streetlink.org.uk/#– all referrals will be followed up by our outreach team who can then offer the appropriate support.
