New facility for homeless residents is launched
Published on Monday, 1st April 2019
A new hostel providing emergency support for homeless people has been opened in Bedworth.
Spitalfields House on High Street, was opened on Friday 29 March by Cllr John Beaumont, portfolio holder for Housing, Health and Communities. Forming part of the borough’s range of hostels supporting homeless people and rough sleepers, the building is equipped with modern amenities, rooms and living spaces.
Converted from a former Council office building, the new hostel can house up to eight households, enabling staff to offer high quality facilities within a convenient central location.
Cllr Beaumont said:
“Homelessness is an ever-increasing problem as the country’s housing crisis worsens. Here in Nuneaton and Bedworth we’re doing all we can to help vulnerable people who find themselves in such stressful circumstances.
“I am delighted with the new building which has been designed to such a high standard and provides support within the town centre. We want our residents to benefit from safe, dignified facilities so that they can focus on getting out of the unfortunate circumstances they find themselves in and improve their lives. This new facility is exactly what is needed.”
