Great to see that #realchangebasingstoke has raised 80% of its total to fund the #Basingstoke night shelter. There's £3,000 left to raise, donations can be made at

Delighted @BasingstokeGov is among the 40. The funding will help set up navigator roles to work alongside existing homelessness support providers in #Basingstoke providing continuity for people moving through services & allowing for a flexible and person-centred approach.

Through the @MEAMcoalition approach we’ve adopted in #basingstoke we are able to support, through a coordinated service response, some of the most vulnerable people who are experiencing multiple & complex needs, mental health being one of those in many cases #TimetoTalk2019 realchangebas photo

The @BasingstokeGov severe weather emergency protocol (SWEP) for people sleeping on the streets has been deactivated for now. Referrals can still be made to the night shelter until the end of Feb. If you see someone you're concerned about @Tell_StreetLink

The snow may have melted but our hearts are still warmed by the tremendous efforts displayed by the #basingstoke night shelter volunteers throughout the cold weather to keep the shelter open to guests. We're raising money for the night shelter at realchangebas photo
