Severe Weather Emergency Protocol

Protecting vulnerable people during severe weather, when conditions can threaten the safety and wellbeing of people who are rough sleeping.

The street outreach Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) helps to protect and provide for vulnerable people during severe weather.

Homelessness charity St Mungo's will try to offer shelter to all people sleeping rough in Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole by providing emergency accommodation.

If you’re concerned about someone sleeping rough, please tell an outreach worker from Streetlink by calling 0300 500 0914.
