Emergency accommodation in severe weather

Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP)

SWEP was activated at 5.50pm on 17 January 2023.

As the temperature drops, we want to make sure no one needs to sleep out on the street during the cold weather.

We urge anyone sleeping rough to register for this provision now, so we can plan in advance. Please register, in person, at:

  • SHOC/Trinity, Quaker Meeting House, 74 Ragstone Rd, Slough SL1 2PX
  • the Salvation Army in Stoke Road, Slough.

During out of hours (between 5pm and 9am), please contact the Emergency Duty Service on 01344 786543.

If you are concerned about anyone sleeping rough and would like to help them to a safe and secured accommodation during the cold weather, please email roughsleeping@slough.gov.uk or go to the Street Link website to report rough sleeping.

If you see a rough sleeper who may need urgent medical assistance, please call 999 first without delay.
