Rain, wind, snow and freezing conditions are forecast for Sheffield this weekend, with people sleeping in tents, makeshift shelters and on the street especially at risk.
Now, Sheffield Tent City’s Anthony Cunningham has issued advice to residents on what to do if they have concerns about someone they sleeping rough.
He said people should be advised to get in touch with Framework Sheffield on 0800 066 5358 or to go to Howden House on Union Street and ask for the housing solutions team.
