Protectal was established in 2019 to design and developed an innovative (and mobile), accommodation facility to offer safety and secure shelter for rough sleepers.
Our approach to development was to engage with charities, field workers, policy makers, council leadership and service users, (including potential service users) to ask for their advice and understand the challenges, complexities and needs of this issue.
Our aim was to address the service gap and to hopefully make a real difference by complimenting existing strategies.
We refined this further with the support of the Salvation Army and their inputs were part of the NAPpad development and design.
The key remit was to build a solution that was durable, safe, secure and warm. The service users’ safety and dignity was paramount.
