Coronavirus information - rough sleeping

We are working very hard to ensure that we offer support to people rough sleeping during this public health crisis. We have so far housed around 250 people in hotels and we are working closely with the MHCLG and GLA to source additional accommodation across London.

Our outreach teams are still out every day talking to rough sleepers in very difficult circumstances and working to bring them into accommodation wherever they can.  

What to do if you are concerned about someone sleeping rough?

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, or if you find yourself at risk of sleeping rough, contact Streetlink, the national rough sleeper referral service:
