Emergency beds for rough sleepers

With temperatures set to fall from tonight, Ipswich Borough Council is activating its emergency beds scheme for rough sleepers until further notice.

The 12 cold weather beds are provided in partnership with Genesis Housing Association at Cavendish Lodge, 10 Turret Lane, Ipswich IP4 1DL.

Access to Cavendish Lodge is from 6pm for an initial assessment by staff, with beds available from 8pm on a first come/first served basis, and also comes with an offer of housing advice to see if trained staff can provide longer term help.
