The sit up service for rough sleepers operates 365 days a year at ‘New Start; 40-42 Leyland Road. Places are limited and available on a ‘first come first served ‘ basis from 8:00PM each evening. Places are often not fully taken up, so there is a good chance of a night off the streets for those who attend.
In order to use this service you should be registered on ‘Mainstay’ at Southport Housing Centre on Eastbank Street beforehand.
This service is all year round. The Cold Weather shelter is additional to this service, when open.
Again, regular rough sleepers and people found begging in Southport are regularly made aware of this service and others by local officers and outreach workers.
