London Street Rescue helps rough sleepers off the streets and into accommodation.
About London Street Rescue
Every night of the year, we are out and about across the capital, acting as a safety net for some of society’s most vulnerable men and women.
Our teams of outreach workers and volunteers find and engage with rough sleepers in a bid to help them off the streets.
We provide practical assistance, including:
Help into emergency accomodation.
Help into hostel accomodation/private rented/The Clearing house/Supported housing.
Help with ID and benefits.
information and advice about support services.
Assistance with linking in with health services.
London Street Rescue helps people of all ages and with many different needs. These include people with poor mental or physical health and those with drug or alcohol problems.
Our teams are there for people who are not getting the services they need and are unlikely to seek help for themselves.
London Street Rescue’s actions can act as a catalyst for change in people’s lives. Getting rough sleepers into accommodation is often the first step towards them getting back on track and having a home of their own.
Our teams refuse to give up on people. We will work with individuals for as long as it takes to help them move away from a street lifestyle, no matter how complex their needs.
People sleeping rough are very vulnerable to the dangers of the streets. The actions of London Street Rescue can save lives.
