You can help people sleeping rough in two easy steps. Here's how:
Step 1: Smile – Smiling or saying hello to someone sleeping rough can help boost their self esteem.
Step 2: StreetLink – Use StreetLink's website or app to connect someone sleeping rough to services that can help them move away from the streets.
Support – This is where our outreach teams come in. Supporting people away from the streets can take time but we are out day and night, building trust and helping people find a place to call home.
Leaving the streets isn't easy, but being HomelessWise is.
Our teams are experts and know how to support people away from the streets.
We are working around the clock to find people and support them off the streets. Our teams are experts, they have the knowledge and compassion to help people find support and accommodation that’s right for them.
We will be able to support some people into accommodation immediately, but for others it might take some time. Everyone’s journey to the streets is different and so are their options away from the streets. Our teams are out day and night, developing relationships, building trust and helping people find a place to call home.
