Emergency Access Accommodation is a new challenge in the form of providing overnight accommodation for Wigan’s cohort of homeless people.
Working in partnership with the local authority The Brick are an instrumental partner in the development of an authority backed homelessness partnership that will lead the direction and focus to tackle homelessness across the Borough.
The Brick will lead and develop a 24/7 hub that provides emergency accommodation to those most in need, providing client facing support duties within the homeless facilities.
At The Brick we are not afraid to do things differently and pilot new initiatives to trial and test new ideas. The night shelter facility in Leigh will be the initial phase in developing homelessness provision across the borough and our night shelter will play a key role in developing a template for the future, as such we will be sharing frontline experience and knowledge with others to contribute to the wider homelessness strategy in Wigan
