Richard Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridge City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cambridge City Council,

I note that in March 2008 Jimmy's Night Shelter in Cambridge was awarded a £3m grant from the Department for Communities and Local Government(1). As I understand it one of the things this was to be used for, in conjunction with funds from the council, was to create a 20 bed "assessment centre" for homeless people.

Could you please release details of the current status of this project including the latest timeline for its completion.
