YRP staff were out early today responding to a StreetLink report of a rough sleeper.
There are warnings in place today (Friday 18th February) going into the weekend so it’s imperative that anyone who has nowhere to go is found and brought in.
If you see someone who you think is rough-sleeping please submit a form to StreetLink at www.streetlink.org.uk
StreetLink: How does it work?
If you are concerned about someone over the age of 18 that you have seen 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.
It is important to note that if you think the person you are concerned about is under 18 please do not contact StreetLink but instead call the police.
StreetLink will ask you for the following information:
1) A specific location for the rough sleeping site.You can do this by using a map to pinpoint the exact location and then providing a written description of the location.
2) Details of the time that the rough sleeper has been seen at the location.
3) Any information about the rough sleeper that will help find them (gender, approximate age, what the person looks like, what they are wearing).
