The council is working with the New Life Church on Brumby Wood Lane in Scunthorpe to provide a place for homeless people to stay overnight, at least twice a week from now until 1 March 2020.

The church will be open two nights per week, every week, plus extra nights when the weather is classed as severe.

The church provides a warm, safe place to sleep. Light meals and hot drinks are available, along with a change of clothes and hygiene products.

The nights the church will be open will be announced every Monday. All other openings will be announced on the day, subject to weather conditions.

This week the church will open on:

  • Sunday 8 December from 6.30pm to Monday 9 December at 7.30am

Next week the church will open on:

  • Monday 9 December from 6.30pm to Tuesday 10 December at 7.30am
  • Thursday 12 December from 10.30pm to Friday 13 December at 7.30am (opening later due being a polling station)

Further details can be found on the homelessness page.
