Beds offered to homeless in Exeter this winter

Extra beds have been made available for rough sleepers in Exeter over the winter period, the City Council has announced.

The 15 extra emergency beds will be provided at Gabriel House in the city centre.

It is part of the City Council's response to providing emergency accommodation and bringing rough sleepers inside during the harshest winter weather.

40 beds were offered to the homeless last year, but a suitable site was not found this year with as many places.

The service will be running from the 1st of December to the end of March meaning that it has been extended by an extra month this year.
