Winter Provision

What is the Winter Provision?

During winter 2022-23 we extended our day centre’s opening hours, 9am-9pm, to offer a warm space and hot food every evening of the week. The winter provision closed at the end of February.

How you can help


Each year we rely on volunteers to delivery additional winter services. For information about year-round opportunities see our Volunteering page. 



We rely on public donations all year round, so that we’re ready to extend our services when winter comes. To make a gift or set up a regular donation, visit our Donations page.

How Did Winter Provision Work?

Additional Support

Along with extend hours at the day centre, we offered anyone sleeping rough kit/clothing etc
to help them stay warm, and looked for ways to meet individual needs using our winter provision funds such as paying for travel to get back to appointments when given an emergency bed out of area. 


Individuals were able to attend our day centre for support and a safe space off the streets. Where possible, we ask people to make their first visit between 9-2pm so that we have time to talk and find out their needs, but new arrivals could still access the evening provision. Our Centre Agreement (for example, no alcohol or drug use on-site) still applied in the evenings, and we completed basic assessments for new arrivals to keep everyone safe. 

Working with us

Our evening provision was open to external agencies to provide support through in-reach sessions. For example, Hep C Trust ran rapid testing sessions.
