Rough sleeping support services

Helping to end rough sleeping in Westminster

Rough sleeping is a difficult cycle to break. Family problems, mental health issues, drug and alcohol addictions, and losing a job can all contribute to people finding themselves homeless and possibly sleeping rough.

Together with our charity partners, we work around the clock to offer accommodation and support services that help people to rebuild their lives.

Our outreach teams work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, helping people sleeping rough off the streets and into accommodation. We commission over 400 supported housing bed spaces and an assessment centre which can sleep up to a further 40.

We also offer a range of housing and outreach support services to support vulnerable people to maintain their independence and prevent rough sleeping, homelessness and unnecessary hospital admission.

Services include day centres and hostels for rough sleepers, specialist supported housing services for people with mental health problems, learning disabilities and young homeless people, and 'floating support' services to support people to maintain their independence in their own home.

We also offer counselling to help people overcome drug and alcohol addiction, befriending services and employment and skills training.
