News flash: Start Over Shelter

Start Over Shelter

The Start Over Shelter (SOS) is opening its doors!!!

189 Dallow Road, Luton, LU1 1NX

 

Luton was left in crisis when the Dallow Road night shelter closed its doors back in February 2014. This left many peoplewith nowhere to stay apart from on the streets or in abandoned buildings. Since then the figures of rough sleepers has risen.

 

Signposts has taken on the challenge to re-open & re-vitalize the Night Shelter as the Start Over Shelter (SOS).  

 

SOS will provide 12 bed spaces for homeless people who have nowhere to stay. SOS will offer  28 day support forclients to find appropriate accommodation.

To access this service JUST TURN UP – SOS will be accessible 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

 

Lead by our experienced staff team Signposts Volunteers andClients will be involved in providing innovative support to SOS clients. This will be beneficial to the clients staying at the SOSas they will receive support from other Homeless clients. Inreturn the volunteers will gain vital work experience, to help them secure future jobs.

 

Scrap the Stereotype – Signposts has been working hard to Scrap the Stereotype around homelessness by raising awareness in Luton and Dunstable.  We are going to be driving this ethos in the Start Over Shelter!
