safe overnight Accommodation
What are we doing?
Why is this project needed?
Working together, 7 church venues in or near the city centre, will each open one night per week in rotation through December 2017 - March 2018. Please see the venues below.
Volunteers give a warm welcome and a substantial meal for up to 35 guests. At 10pm, paid overnight staff take over as the guests go to sleep in sleeping bags on matresses on the church floor. Next morning there’ll be a breakfast as guests leave by 8am.
In April 2013, Derby City Council began a cut of 85% to homeless beds funding over 2 years. Several hostels have closed. These cuts are still ongoing.
What will it cost?
We need £100,000 this winter:
£2 for a hot meal and breakfast
£17.20 for one person for a night, including 2 meals
£25 for a set of bedding
£70 for all the meals for a night
£600 for all the costs of one nights operation
£10,250 for a month’s overnight staff costs
