Exeter’s Winter Night Shelter
Published: 22 October 2019
Exeter’s Winter Night Shelter The Junction is a key starting point in finding rough sleepers a more settled lifestyle.
Cllr Emma Morse, Lead Councillor for Supporting People, said that once people were out of the cold and wet weather, they could then start working on more long term solutions.
“We set it up so that nobody is cold or wet or sleeping on the streets in this weather because it’s not good for anyone,” said Cllr Morse.
“We are hoping to bring people in and keep them warm and also have a conversation so that we can learn more about them and get them into a more settled lifestyle and more permanent housing,” she added.
Last winter, the shelter in Magdalen Street – dubbed The Junction - supported 193 rough sleepers, providing a total of 3,985 bed nights.
