EHAP advisers have been attending the Bethany Care Shelter on Tuesday nights where people are able to get a three course meal and somewhere warm to sleep for the night.
An EHAP adviser is available every Tuesday night for a chat and some housing advice until lights out at 10.45pm.
Bethany has seen demand for the service increase alarmingly over the last few years and the total number of individuals presenting this year for the duration of the service is on target to top nine hundred. In fact, this winter they have regularly had to turn people away having reached capacity. They offer those turned away sleeping bags, if available.
