As we head into bad weather, we wanted to share info on Kettering Borough Council’s Severe Weather Scheme which helps to provide accommodation for rough-sleepers in adverse weather.

If the temperature falls below 0c for 3 consecutive nights, the Council will provide overnight accommodation for anyone sleeping rough. Due to the weather forecast, the Council has activated this scheme from today (7th December) until the 13th December. If you come across anyone needing accommodation ring KBC’s Customer Service Centre on 01536 532418 both in hours and out of hours (there will be instructions / re-direction on this line out of hours).

If we could ask you to be as kind as to use the buttons on this page to share this post to Social Media, it will help us get the message out so that we can help people vulnerable to the weather conditions of winter.
