Maidenhead Rough Sleepers
Rough sleeper food bags can be collected during our Foodshare diner opening times. Wednesdays from 5:15 pm to 6:30 pm and Saturdays 9:30 am - 11:30 am
We offer a lifesaving grab-and-go bag for all rough sleepers who come to us during our opening times. Nourishing food and drinks are on hand during these times. We strive to provide a warm meal and a safe place for those who are homeless or in need of assistance. Our team of dedicated volunteers are passionate about making a positive difference in the community, and we invite you to join us in this mission.
If you or someone you know is a rough sleeper in need of a quick and nourishing meal or drink, be sure to stop by our diner during our opening times. Our lifesaving grab-and-go food bags are packed with nutritious items to help sustain you until your next meal.
We understand the challenges that come with not having a stable living situation, and our aim is to provide comfort and support in any way that we can. With our grab-and-go bags, you can have access to nourishing food and drinks to keep you going through the day.
So if you're in need of assistance or know someone who is, come visit our Foodshare diner and grab a bag today. We are here for you, and we care.
Cold Weather Prevention, Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead
An enhanced and comprehensive support system for vulnerable residents in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has been announced to ensure these residents can access the services they need.
Throughout the winter period we will be putting in place a new, comprehensive Cold Weather Provision to provide a clear pathway from sleeping rough, to a shelter, to the council’s support services and into longer-term accommodation.
The Cold Weather Provision is a coordinated, joined-up approach to ensure the Royal Borough, charity organisations and others are working together with the clear purpose of supporting vulnerable people sleeping rough into longer-term solutions.
Anyone sleeping rough in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead can benefit from the support being delivered through Cold Weather Provision. The provision in place exceeds the council’s statutory Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) duties and will include a commitment to ensure all rough sleepers are assessed by our experienced outreach team, within the initial 10 days of support being offered by any agency. SWEP is activated when the temperature falls below zero for consecutive days.
SWEP arrangements will be provided in the Royal Borough, and we will be working with homeless charities and other partner organisations to make sure that all rough sleepers know about the provision and are aware of how to access it.
The Council have set up a service to provide accommodation for all rough sleepers in Windsor and Maidenhead. To access the service, call:
Office Hours (9 am-5 pm): 01628 683803
Out of Hours: 01344 786543
