Rough sleeping

Reconnection Service

In common with most other local authorities, we operate a local connection policy which means someone will only be considered for housing (including the Nightshelter) if they have a local connection with Northampton.

For people who are sleeping rough in Northampton and have no local connection, we can help them return to an area (or country of origin) that is familiar to them and where they do have a local connection and can get support.

To assist with the person’s reconnection, we will organise their travel and meet their travel costs.
