A Bed Every Night (ABEN)

Bury has made a commitment to provide 'A Bed Every Night' (ABEN) for all people that are rough sleeping on the streets in Bury.

The ABEN Phase 3 provision will provide:

  • Bed for the night and provision
  • Accommodation with appropriate facilities 24 hours a day
  • Intense wrap around support for the client

Completed referral forms can be emailed to Bury Housing Assessment by any agency, between the hours of 9am to 5pm. If referrals are made on email, rough sleepers will need to attend a quick meeting with the Housing Assessment team, before they are able to access the provision.

All relevant contact details are on the attached for referrals to be made.

Alternatively, rough sleepers can present to the Housing Reception located at Six Town Housing to complete the referral and relevant forms. The reception is open Monday to Friday, between 10am and 1pm.

We also have a Rough sleepers Outreach service in which our team will complete outreach and interventions for all rough sleepers. If you are aware of any Rough sleepers please contact the Homeless Assessment team on 0161 253 5537 or email The Rough Sleepers Outreach Service..
