Shelter and welfare

If you are evacuated, you will be more comfortable staying with friends and family, however if this not possible, Birmingham City Council has a responsibility to provide temporary shelter and welfare. A number of sites across Birmingham have been pre-designated as rest centres, providing short-term and/or overnight accommodation and meals.

For the most vulnerable evacuees who may not be able to self-evacuate, transportation will be provided to the nearest rest centre.
