Rough sleeping

How to tell us about people sleeping rough

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, please tell the Street Outreach Workers about it and provide them with as much detail as possible.  

The Street Outreach Workers will respond quickly to your report, locate the person who is sleeping rough and help them access support and accommodation.

You can telephone the Street Outreach Team on (01604) 837344 or (01604) 837345, or e-mail them at [email protected]

Alternatively, you can report it via the Streetlink website: www.streetlink.gov.uk

Streetlink is a government-funded service that enables members of the public to alert local authorities to rough sleepers in their area, so that action can then be taken to ensure that vulnerable people are connected to the help they need.
