Our policy on how we support non-UK nationals who are rough sleeping.
At St Mungo’s, we believe that rough sleeping can be ended by 2026. Essential to ending rough sleeping and homelessness is supporting non-UK nationals to find sustainable routes off the street.
We are committed to providing quality assessments and access to immigration advice to ensure every client fully understands their rights. We support every client to explore all possible routes into housing, regardless of their nationality, immigration status or entitlement to benefits.
We do not share any information about our clients with the Home Office without the client’s full and informed consent. We only ask for consent to share information with the Home Office in limited circumstances where the client has immigration advice in place and for the purpose of achieving a positive outcome for the client. In some of our services there may be certain very limited circumstances where we are legally obliged to share information with the Home Office, for example, where we are required to conduct ‘right to rent’ checks.
