Derby Homeless Persons Directory – Emergency support (Food/Shelter/Hostels)

what-to-do-when-you-are-feeling-hopeless B&W

A few weeks ago I received an email from a homeless guy who was in a hostel, but was seeking information from me as to where he could get hot food that evening. I was able to direct him to the options based on my contacts with the relevant organisation. It occurred to me that there was no single place that contains key details around emergency provisions – despite the Council claiming to have one in place. This inspired me to compile this page. I will keep it up to date until it is evident that an equivalent exists elsewhere.
