Rough sleepers

Seen someone sleeping rough?

  • Rough sleepers over 18 years:
    • send an alert to StreetLink.
    • details will be sent to the local authority or outreach service for the area where you saw the person.
    • They will try to find the person and connect them to support.
  •  Rough sleepers under 18 years:
    • Call the police.
    • Do not contact StreetLink

Be ready for floods and other emergencies

We work with the emergency services and utility companies to deal with most community emergencies. However some community self-help can ease the pressure and be better for local residents. Such as looking after fire evacuees in their community hall. How your community will help should be written in an emergency plan.

Community action and volunteering
