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.
