Rough Sleeping

We can provide advice, help and support to anyone who is rough sleeping.

If you're sleeping rough or know someone who is sleeping rough you can contact Homelessness Team for help.

The Homelessness Team are based at Riverside and we are available Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm. You don't need an appointment. 

To get help for anyone sleeping rough:

  • phone the  Housing Opttions team on 01709 336009 during office hours.
  • out of hours you can phone 07748143170
  • or visit Streetlink

Anyone sleeping rough is offered overnight accommodation during severe weather. This is usually when the temperature falls to zero degrees or below, but we want to help you find accommodtion as soon as we can.  We may be able to provide short term temporary accommodations while we help you find a more permanent place to live.
