Due to the current cold weather the council’s Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) has been activated. When the SWEP is active the council can arrange emergency accommodation for all rough sleepers in Charnwood.

If you are rough sleeping in the Charnwood area please contact the Housing Needs team on 01509 634567 (24 hours) or visit the council offices on Southfield Road, Loughborough, LE11 2TT (between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Please note: The office is closed from 1-1.30pm Monday-Friday).

If you are worried about someone else who is rough sleeping, please make a referral to www.streetlink.org.uk.

If you are sleeping rough, please visit our homelessness advice.

If you are concerned about a rough sleeper, please contact StreetLink on 0300 500 0914 or visit the StreetLink website.
