SWEP+ (Severe Weather Emergency Protocol)

If you see someone sleeping rough in Watford, please let them know about SWEP+ (Severe Weather Emergency Protocol)

The winter night shelter, known as SWEP+, is running tonight and then EVERY night in February and March.

Severe weather emergency protocol (SWEP) aims to get rough sleepers off the streets during periods of below zero night-time temperatures, by providing emergency accommodation.

There are three ways to access this life-saving service;

Call New Hope’s 24/7 number 0300 012 0168.

Visit the Haven on Whippendell Road between 8.30am and 3.30pm.

Visit the police station (Shady Lane) between 8pm and 10pm.

SWEP+ is run in partnership with Watford Borough Council and local churches.
