How To Stay Safe When Homeless

You are without security and are exposed to the elements and to the world in general. It is important that you take care of your safety and your health.

Stay safe, warm and dry

  • If you are homeless, tents, shelters and sleeping bags can help you stay warm and dry. We are constantly asking for waterproof tents and warm sleeping bags – please ask us if this is something you need.
  • Day centres are also warm places you can visit. They are usually open during the day.
  • Our local day centre is “Loose Ends” in Morten Hall, Newbury Baptist Church, Cheap Street, Newbury. They operate a supportive drop-in service every day of the week except Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • Two Saints Hostel offers accommodation to local people who are homeless. Call 01635 519588 or visit their website
  • Attending at the Housing Options office at West House, West Street, Newbury, will give you access to advice on your housing needs.

Eat Well

  • Loose Ends offers varying food every day except Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • The Newbury Soup Kitchen provides hot meals and drinks and an array of donated food from local businesses on Thursday evenings from 6.00pm-8.00pm.
  • An outreach worker, day centre or advice centre may be able to help you with a referral to a food bank.

Look after your health

  • NHS walk-in centres provide emergency treatment for minor injuries and illnesses.
  • Our local walk-in centre is at West Berkshire Community Hospital, London Road, RG18 3AS (Thatcham), telephone 01635 273300.
