Following an external safety review, and after working hard to put appropriate procedures in place, Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Stratford Link Project reopened on Tuesday 11 June from a new venue at the United Reformed Church on Rother Street in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The District Council and its partner agencies, including Stratford Churches and P3, met on Tuesday 4 June to introduce the new service.

The project will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week from 12:30 to 14:30 at the United Reformed Church.

It will provide help, advice and support to rough sleepers, former rough sleepers, and vulnerable individuals who require assistance. Drinks and food will also be available at the drop-in sessions, along with access to support agencies.

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

  • call the district council's Housing Advice Team on 01789 260861
  • call the district council's Rough Sleeper Engagement Officer on 01789 260645 or 07929369273
