Great news the petition was presented by John Hadman at full council on 1st February and passed unanimously!
What’s Next for Brighton & Hove’s Homeless?
John has written a letter to Councillor Clare Moonan to ask for more night shelter accommodation. Here is a video of the ingenious and practical pods that are being used for sleeping in. They provide a basic human right – a place to lay your head that is warm, dry and secure. See the video to find out more.
We will follow it to make sure the council keep to their word.

Open Brighton’s Homeless Shelters 365 days a year
Sign petition to Brighton & Hove City Council to open homeless night shelters all year round (365 days).
In the meantime, we urge the council to conform to central government directions on opening SWEP shelters (Severe Weather Emergency Protocol). We understand this government requirement is not being met, with approximately £90,000 left unspent from previous years of SWEP budget. Read more and sign petition
