Guidance to help you develop suitable responses during the winter and periods of severe weather.
Guidance on Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) and extended weather provision
Who should use this guidance?
Local authorities, homelessness providers, faith and community groups.
This guidance is designed to support Local Authorities to provide Severe Weather Emergency Protocol responses in order to prevent deaths of people sleeping rough during winter. It also covers good practice in delivering Extended Winter Provision such as night shelters, and how these can be an opportunity to end people's homelessness. The guidance is accompanied by a report based on last year's survey of SWEP and winter provision, highlighting key data from respondents over the 2017-18 winter period.
