St Petrocs Cold Weather Provision is an emergency shelter which we run for those who are sleeping rough in Cornwall during the coldest period of the winter months.
The service is to enable anyone who has no other option than to sleep rough to be offered the option of coming in from the cold, and bedding down for the night in a basic, but warm and safe setting.
This winter, St Petrocs has delivered 179 nights worth of Cold Weather Provision across 2 locations to 89 individuals who accessed on 1,306 occasions. All would have had to have slept rough if the provision had not been provided.
68.5% of clients were found accommodation, or secured accommodation themselves with friends or in the private rented sector and were able to leave Cold Weather Provision to move to somewhere indoors.
