THE effort to launch the 'Safe Space' at Burton county court would require significant investment.
It would cost in the region of £425,000 to buy the freehold.
An extra £40,000 needs to be made available so two specialist members of staff can be hired on six-month contracts.
The yearly rates for the building are £36,250 but, at present, energy bills and legal costs have not been calculated.
The cost of a bed will be £1,200 per night, so a 72-hour stay will cost a total of £3,600 per client per stay.
It is hoped to provide 14 beds, therefore it will cost £5,980,800 per year to run.
The site will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Beds will be available to people in Staffordshire.
All staffing costs will be met from this income.
Funding to buy the building and pay for costs would be sought from a range of areas including councils, police and the NHS.
Staffing needs would be in line with current legislation for the number of beds, hours, shift patterns and care given.
There will be one nurse manager. The plans also feature the possible creation of a cafe on site.
