StreetLink is a platform that connects people rough sleeping in England and Wales to support provided by local authorities and charities. This includes anyone who is sleeping outside, preparing to bed down, or sleeping somewhere not designed for habitation, such as a car. To make these connections, the platform relies on alerts submitted by members of the public and people sleeping rough.
To make an alert, follow these 3 simple steps:
Pinpoint a specific location of where you have seen the person sleeping rough using our map feature and include a written description of the location.
Provide details on the time the person was sleeping rough at the location and any further information about their appearance that can help identify them.
Once submitted, your alert goes to the local authority or outreach service in the area. You will receive an update within 10 working days if you have requested it.
