With temperatures about to plunge, Ipswich Borough Council is today activating its emergency beds scheme for rough sleepers until further notice.
The 11 cold weather beds are provided in partnership with Genesis Housing Association at Cavendish Lodge, 10 Turret Lane, Ipswich IP4 1DL.
Access to Cavendish Lodge is from 5pm for an initial assessment by staff, with risk assessments completed by 6pm. After that, access will be limited to service users being brought in by prior agreement of staff or by Police.
Accommodation also comes with an offer of housing advice to see if trained staff can provide longer term help.
