KiP Telford is an appointment based service, we would ask you to call us first so we can ensure those sleeping rough and in emergency need are given priority support.
However, we do offer a walk-in service for people in emergency need and those without a communication device. You maybe asked to wait until a member of our team is available to assist you, or to return at a predetermined time later in the day.
The walk-in service is available 09:30 - 15:00.
If you are about to leave prison
If you are due to leave prison and need assistance to prevent homelessness, you will be asked to complete a telephone assessment with a member of our team.
