Extra hostel beds for homeless in cold weather
EMERGENCY beds are being arranged for homeless people, in Derby.
Sheltered housing provider Riverside, in Centenary House, Mount Street, is putting on six extra beds to help rough-sleepers during the cold weather.
Reg Smith, Riverside's local manager, said: "In Derby, our team are doing their best to help ensure no one dies on the streets from the cold weather this winter.
"Importantly, we are also providing specialist support which not only helps keep people alive in the short-term but also helps them move off the streets long-term."

Centenary House is providing camp beds for up to four people, who will all be given bedding and offered a shower, a change of clothes and a hot meal.
The 32-bed scheme provides accommodation for single homeless adults. Facilities include a women's unit, a drug dependency unit, two alcohol dependency units, a training kitchen and a lounge with pool tables. Residents also have access to computers.
Joanne Burton, team leader at Centenary House, said: "Accommodating the rough-sleepers here, even if it is just for a short time, also means that our specialist support workers can start to establish what support they need that could help them permanently off the streets."
