St Mungo’s – Somewhere Safe to Stay (Oxford)
Somewhere Safe to Stay Oxford provides support and short term accommodation to those who are at risk of homelessness or who are new to rough sleeping. The building of Floyds Row will also accommodate a multi-agency hub where individuals who are experiencing homelessness can come and engage positively with other agencies such as Turning Point and Crisis to learn new skills, recover from addition, find accommodation etc. The St Mungo’s Outreach Team will also be based within the building too. When fully operational, there will be 40 bed spaces for those at risk or homelessness, or finding themselves new to rough sleeping. They also offer an additional 16 Winter Shelter Spaces from October – March, as well as opening up more spaces when the Met Office forecasts that the overnight temperature will drop to zero or below the council activates its severe weather emergency protocol (SWEP).
