As snow and cold weather blow in across the UK, everyone’s feeling the bite. But people sleeping rough have to face the cold in a way most of us can’t even imagine.
The British Red Cross helps in Nottingham by running a ‘sit-up service’ in partnership with Nottingham City Council, the community protection team and Framework Housing Association.
Sit-up gives homeless men and women a safe and warm place to go when temperatures are forecast to fall below zero.
I’ve been volunteering for the sit-up service since it started last year.
