During the coldest months of the year, extra help is available for those sleeping rough in the district.
Emergency accommodation is provided at the Sanctuary hostel in Hitchin (now known as Helping Herts Homeless), which is run by Stevenage Haven. As well as a bed for the night, clients get a hot evening meal and access to bathroom facilities and a laundry.
If you wish to report a rough sleeper you are concerned about, please send an alert to StreetLink.
If you wish to be referred for emergency accommodation yourself, please contact us through the Housing Assistance Referral Portal.
