WHAT DOES STOPGAP DO?

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.

COVID-19 UPDATE

1st June 2020

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.
