The Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) is in place throughout Maidstone to help those sleeping rough in our locality during extreme weather. The SWEP solution and type of accommodation may differ from local authority area to area but will generally provide a safe and warm place for street-homeless people to stay overnight.
Those needing to access emergency accommodation during bad weather should contact their district council’s Housing Options team. The Housing Options team for Maidstone can be contacted at: 01622 602000
Alternatively, those looking for winter shelter can approach Restoring Hands - register by calling 01622 296450 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, attend in person at:
George Street Maidstone ME15 6TP
