Extra help for rough sleepers during prolonged cold weather

With the temperature due to fall below zero for three nights, we are providing severe weather emergency provisions (SWEP) to anyone who is sleeping rough.

As a result, we are offering overnight accommodation for those affected, and people should attend our housing options hubs as soon as possible for help and support. 

We have advice hubs at Monkton Park in Chippenham, County Hall in Trowbridge and Bourne Hill in Salisbury, and work with partner agencies to support people, not just during the worst weather but also by looking at longer term housing solutions as part of this process.

During work hours, our advice service can be contacted on Chippenham 01249 706666, Trowbridge 01225 718005 or Salisbury 01722 434233. After 5.30pm or at weekends, please contact our emergency team on 0845 60 70 888.
