A new safe place for homeless people to take shelter in during the colder winter months is to be provided by the Isle of Wight Council.

The local authority is opening an emergency winter shelter at the former Barton Primary School site in Newport.

As well as providing rough sleepers with a warm, safe place to sleep and hot food in the coldest months, the shelter will enable the council to make contact with this very vulnerable group of people so it can help find a permanent solution to their housing needs.

The council is commissioning the Salvation Army, an expert in homeless services, to lead the service which will offer much more than just a safe sanctuary for the night.
