The initiative is part of plans to move away from traditional homeless shelters
A homeless charity is set to take over a city centre hotel to help keep people safe and off the streets this winter.
Glasgow City Mission’s Overnight Welcome Centre will be based in a city centre hotel this year.
The charity has secured the site but is keeping its location confidential, with the move aimed at bringing an end to winter shelters that have been used in the past.
Up to 25 residents will be housed at the hotel and will receive meals, as well as support from staff.
The centre will open on 1 December and is set to run until the end of March.
An extra staff position has been created to support hotel residents move into settled accommodation as part of the centre’s service.
The new housing settlement officer will help move residents into more permanent arrangements quickly.
The role was created by securing Comic Relief funding through Homeless Link and is budgeted for 12 months.
