The Belvidere Family Centre provides emergency accommodation for up to 16 homeless families who have been assessed by Liverpool City Council’s Housing Options Service. The service is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Shap, in partnership with The Whitechapel Centre has been providing this temporary accommodation service since 2012.
The accommodation comprises a state of the art, ecologically friendly building with a high degree of self containment for homeless families. In 2011, the building benefited from a £4m refurbishment to provide a range of on-site facilities.
