        Thanet’s Severe Weather Emergency Protocol for rough sleepers activated

        The Met Office has forecast overnight temperature of below zero for the next three nights. We will therefore be activating Thanet’s Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP)

        from tonight (Monday 2 December 2019), meaning rough sleepers will be offered a warm bed for the night. 

        If you know or meet anyone who will be sleeping rough during this time please call 01843 577277  and spread the word so that other people are aware too.

        Our SWEP policy aims to ensure the safety and wellbeing of anybody we believe to be rough sleeping. We are working closely with the RISE rough sleeping outreach team to ensure that any known rough sleepers are proactively offered relief during this cold snap.
