This time of year is one of the most challenging for homeless people and those sleeping rough in particular.
We know that many people want to help rough sleepers but don’t know the best way to do this. That’s why we are pleased to support the launch of StreetLink, a new telephone line 0300 500 0914 and website www.streetlink.org.uk which will help link someone sleeping on the street with local advice and services. This excellent service has been developed by Broadway and Homeless Link and allows concerned members of the public to connect rough sleepers with local advice and services they may not be aware of.
Please take the first step to help rough sleepers by saving the StreetLink number to your phone and next time you see someone rough sleeping, call or visit www.streetlink.org.uk.
With thanks to
