Stop the Scandal

Rough sleeping is damaging and ruins lives. Our research shows that at least four in 10 people who sleep rough have a mental health problem. Mental health problems can make it harder to break the cycle of rough sleeping - people with a mental health problem who end up sleeping rough are 50% more likely to spend over a year on the streets.

Since February 2016, St Mungo's has been calling for a new national rough sleeping strategy, and changes to the law to ensure that fewer people end up stuck sleeping rough. 

We're calling on all MPs to make a firm commitment to end rough sleeping.
