2017 shelter reaches all time high Our emergency night shelter runs from January to March every year. In the 2017 season: We gave 41 individuals somewhere warm and safe to sleep, as well as a nourishing dinner, and breakfast to see them through the day ahead. We had 857 bed nights, which means we provided 857 nights of shelter for all our guests combined. We have the capacity to take 12 rough sleepers on any one night, and this year we averaged a 80% occupancy– of around 10 guests per night. Compared to last year, the numbers of shelter guests and bed nights were both up 8%, which suggests that rough sleeping in High Wycombe is even more present now than it was in 2016.
