A new service to help rough sleepers off the streets has been officially opened.

The Assessment Centre, run by the Hope Housing charity, has ten beds which can be used to sleep homeless people in an emergency.

During the day the centre, housed in a building on Green Lane, Bradford and owned by social housing landlord Incommunities, is a base for workers helping people to find accommodation.

The service started at the end of February and helped 16 people off the streets within four weeks, but this week agencies working with homeless people and the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain, were invited to its official opening.
