Severe Weather Emergency Protocols (SWEP)

Severe Weather Emergency Protocols (SWEP) has been put in place by the London Mayor for the first time this winter to protect homeless people across all 33 London Council boroughs during these arctic temperatures. This means the local authorities are committed to book hotel accommodation for anyone sleeping outside. This applies to anyone, regardless of resident status (I.e. non-UK citizens).

If you meet someone within Harrow borough that is sleeping outside you can contact the Harrow Council Housing Assessment Team:

02084241093 (9am to 5pm) or 

020 8863 5611 (out of hours)
