StreetLink helping rough sleepers
Published: 18 December 2017
Residents and visitors can use StreetLink to help connect people sleeping rough in the Borough with local services that can support them.
Through the website and app the public can report information on the rough sleeping site, details of the time that the rough sleeper has been seen at the location and any information that will help to find them.
This information is then passed to the Council and outreach team so they can locate the individual and offer support.
The quickest way to alert StreetLink is via the StreetLink website or mobile app, however you can also call 0300 500 0914.
You can also help rough sleepers this winter by supporting a coalition of 18 charities through the 'No one needs to sleep rough in London’ campaign launched by the Mayor of London.
The London Charities Homeless Group GoFundMe page set up by the coalition of charities offers an easy accessible single donation point, with all funds generated going equally to all 18 charities so they can direct vital services for people sleeping rough.
