Rough sleeping

We can provide advice, help and support to anyone who is rough sleeping. If you're sleeping rough or know someone who is you can contact the Housing Options team for help. To get help for anyone sleeping rough:

  • Phone the Housing Options team on 0345 678 9005
  • or visit Streetlink

Anyone sleeping rough is offered overnight accommodation during severe weather. This is usually when the temperature falls to zero degrees or below.

The Shrewsbury Ark is a day centre for homeless people and is situated at 10 Castle Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY1 2DJ (opposite the train station). You can visit their website for more information.
