Are you homeless but not from the UK?

  Unfortunately, some people are not eligible for benefits and are not able to access emergency accommodation. Whilst this makes the situation more difficult, we work with anyone sleeping rough, regardless of their circumstances, so please contact us.

Common questions

I've seen someone sleeping rough, what should I do?

If you are aware of someone sleeping rough, please fill in the referral form below and provide us with as much information as possible. 

Does it cost to stay in emergency accommodation?

 No. However, there may be a number of reasons why an individual may choose not to access emergency accommodation, but instead seek alternative accommodation in a b&b or hostel for the night.  

What happens when your outreach workers find someone sleeping rough?

 Every situation is different but usually when our outreach workers find a person sleeping rough they undertake an assessment with the person and offer them support. We will ask them if they would like help in accessing emergency accommodation. 

However, not everyone wishes to access emergency accommodation and we will work with that individual based on what they wish to do, while providing practical support and information. Working with people one-on-one can take time and we often need to build a trusting relationship, meaning that you might not see a change in the person's situation straight away although support is being offered.
