Stratford District Council Link Project to reopen

Ian Hughes 7th Jun, 2019

A HOMELESS drop-in centre in Stratford will reopen on Tuesday (June 11).

Stratford Link Project closed in February after an unspecified incident prompted safety concerns.

The Stratford District Council run project, which had been on Waterside, will offer temporary provision at a new base at the United Reformed Church on Rother Street.

The move, which follows a review, was agreed by the district council and partner agencies including town churches and charity P3.

The project will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week from 12.30pm until 2.30pm providing help, advice and support to rough sleepers and vulnerable people in need.

Drinks and food will also be available at the drop in sessions, along with access to support agencies.

District spokesman Coun Jo Barker said: “The district council is committed to assisting rough sleepers on the streets of Stratford.

“I’m really pleased that we are reopening the Stratford Link Project which is such a vital service to all those who use it.”

The council stepped in to run the centre in 2016 after the former provider Bromford Support stopped operating in Warwickshire.

Anyone who is homeless and needs help, advice and support can contact:

The district council’s housing advice team on 01789 260861, the council’s rough sleeper engagement officer Ann Johnson on 07929369273, or P3 on 01789 336279.

Alternatively they can speak to someone directly at the district council’s Elizabeth House headquarters in Church Street.
