I lived in Sheffield from 1998-2001 when I was at University and I spent time at the below places:

Haven House women's refuge.

Telephone number: 0114 2739126

I just looked it up as I had forgotten the number and it also says it is from Mon-Fri 9 am - 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7pm and 12 pm.

I phoned up within the working week but I'm sure that the police would be able to take you there and see if there was a bed 24 hours a day.

After 7 months at Haven House I got my place with the Young Women's Housing Project:
