The Culemborg Safe Space was trialed in 2018 as a pilot project that has since served as a blueprint for the creation of two more City-run Safe Spaces.
The City marks the fourth anniversary of the Culemborg 1 Safe Space today.
The overnight facility was opened on the Foreshore on 29 June
2018, to offer a transitional space for persons wanting to get off the street.
The Safe Space has always been about offering care to those in need.
We're expanding these Safe Spaces beyond the CBD and Bellville too, so that more residents have a warm, dry space to rest, receive meals and be connected to City services such as employment opportunities, rehabilitation and reintegration with their families.
With the lifting of the remaining Covid-19 restrictions, we can now operate our Safe Spaces at full capacity.
We are also adding 150 beds at the neighbouring Safe Space 2 in line with the expansion of our care programme, and demonstrate our commitment to the dignity and well-being of all our residents,' said Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis.
