Tell us about the person sleeping rough

ImportantCall 999 if the person is in immediate danger, needs medical assistance, is under 18 or is with someone who is under 18.

StreetLink can be used by anyone in England and Wales to send an alert about someone who is sleeping or preparing to sleep rough.

Alerts are sent to outreach teams, who go out mostly at night to connect people sleeping rough to local support services.

StreetLink complements existing outreach work by alerting teams to people they haven’t seen before.

Who should you tell us about?

StreetLink can only accept alerts for people who are sleeping rough or preparing to sleep rough and are over 18. If someone is under 18 years old, call 999. Please do not make an alert if the person is begging or engaging in anti-social behaviour if they are not rough sleeping.
