New Exeter pods installed

New Exeter pods offer short term ‘crash pad’ for rough sleepers

Amazing Grace Spaces team installed two sets of twin pods in the  Howell Road car park, offering basic accommodation with a bed, toilet, solar-powered lighting and a USB charging port along with keyless entry.

Councillor Martin Pearce, lead for Communities and Homelessness Prevention, said “The flexibility of a pod can also mean that in an emergency we can offer a safe place for a situation that our out-of-hours provision could use as an alternative option.”

We are delighted to see the pods in place and look forward to hearing all about the lives which have been impacted by having a safe space to sleep.
