If you are HOMELESS
Contact your local council. If you are calling out of office hours, use the emergency contact number on your council’s website. If there is no emergency service, contact your neighbouring council.
No second night out
No Second Night Out (NSNO) focuses on helping those who find themselves rough sleeping on the streets of London for the first time. It will ensure there is a rapid response to new rough sleepers, and will provide an offer that means they do not have to sleep out for a second night..
If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough
If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough in England or Wales, you can use this website to send an alert to StreetLink. The details you provide are sent to the local authority or outreach service for the area in which you have seen the person, to help them find the individual and connect them to support.
