Concerned about someone sleeping rough?
Streetlink enables the public to alert local authorities in England and Wales about rough sleepers in their area.
This service offers the public a means to act when they see someone sleeping rough and is the first step someone can take to ensure rough sleepers are connected to the local services and support available to them. The service is funded by government as part of their commitment to end rough sleeping.

Severe weather emergency protocol
We have a severe weather emergency protocol, which is designed to get rough sleepers off the streets during severe weather by providing emergency temporary accommodation. Our protocol was designed in line with government guidance.
The protocol is activated when the predicted night time temperature is likely to be zero degrees Celsius or less for three consecutive nights.
When the protocol is activated, anyone who is rough sleeping can contact the council to access emergency accommodation whilst the protocol is active, regardless of the eligibility under homelessness legislation. Find out about our rough sleepers - severe weather emergency protocol.
