Helping rough sleepers

We are working with a range of partners and community groups to ensure rough sleepers are given appropriate support and offered a route off the streets.

We understand that residents want to help homeless people with donations. If you would like to provide support, please donate to charities such as Providence Row, Shelter, Centrepoint and Crisis.
