StopGap arranges and pays for bed and breakfast accommodation, one night at a time, for clients referred to us by our voluntary sector partner agencies. The average length of stay is 2 nights; this gives both client and agency a bit of breathing space and time to seek other solutions.

StopGap works with voluntary sector partner agencies, such as Framework, (Sheffield's Rough Sleeper Team), to pay for bed and breakfast accommodation one night at a time. This allows both the client and the agency a small breathing space to seek out other housing solutions.

As part of the multi-agency Covid-19 response in Sheffield, since March, we have placed a total of 42 people who were rough sleeping or at risk from rough sleeping, for a total of 108 bed nights.

This has meant that 42 people have been helped off the streets and are now engaging with the Framework and housing solutions teams.

We are a registered charity, and receive no statutory funding. We rely on donations and grants to fund our work.

If you are able to make a donation to help fund this ongoing work, please visit https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/finalCharityHomepage.action?charityId=1015474

Thank you.
