What we do to help rough sleepers
- We aim to work closely with individuals rough sleeping in the local area to support and encourage them into sustainable accommodation.
- We encourage residents to report rough sleepers through the central Streetlink referral system.
- We work with Turning Tides to provide outreach floating support to rough sleepers in the Mid Sussex area.
We are not under a legal duty to provide emergency accommodation for everyone who is sleeping rough. However, rough sleepers are encouraged to work with us and Turning Tides to access all their housing options. We may arrange short term accommodation for people sleeping rough during severe weather conditions.
