Fenland secures additional funding for rough sleeping support
An extra £23,940 of government funding has been secured by Fenland District Council to help support homeless people through the winter.
The award from the Cold Weather Fund will enable winter shelter provisions to be extended at Wisbech's Emergency Night Shelter, run by homeless charity The Ferry Project, until March 31.
The grant is in addition to £50,000 previously secured from the fund, which provided additional accommodation for rough sleepers through the months of November to February.
