Streetlink and Street Support

Published: Thursday 8 November 2018

If you are concerned about someone you have seen sleeping rough in or around the city area then you can use the streelink website to alert local services who can then make contact to locate the person and help them directly.  Updates are sent back to inform you of what has been done to assist, if requested, usually within 10 working days.

You can also donate to local services through Street Support.  Donations are provided directly to local homeless services delivered for people sleeping rough in order to help individuals into their own accommodation.
