Our responsive service works with people who are rough sleeping in the town to support them to access the services they require with the aim of ultimately supporting them back into accommodation.
Our Outreach team provide regular day/night sweeps of the town to respond to notifications of people sleeping on the streets. The team will support people with health/GP/addiction services/ benefits/housing issues as well as working with the Council's housing department and private landlords to source accommodation.
This service links to the other services Accommodation Concern provides including free advice from our advisers, access to foodbank supplies, and referrals where appropriate to our supported accommodation provision.
