Severe Winter Emergency ProtocolParish Clerk
As the weather turns very cold Buckinghamshire Council are cascading messages on their social media channels in relation to homelessness. The Council is still operating over the winter under ‘Everyone In’ scheme due to the Covid19 pandemic and so ‘SWEP’ will effectively operate over the winter until 31 March 2021. As such there is no need for anyone to sleep outside over the winter.
If you see anyone sleeping out on the streets of Buckinghamshire, please contact StreetLink via http://streetlink.org.uk or phone 0300 500 0914, who will notify dedicated Outreach workers. If you see anyone you believe to be under the age of 18 and or are concerned about the health or welfare of anyone that you see sleeping rough please call 999.
