Reach’s outreach teams work closely with the Mayor of London’s No Second Night
Out (NSNO) project, working to ensure that no one arriving on the streets of the capital
will sleep out for a second night.
Reach’s outreach teams – London Street Rescue, Tower Hamlets SORT, TRIO and
Croydon Reach – work with NSNO to respond quickly to new referrals of people
found sleeping rough on the streets of the capital.
outreach teams work to ensure all London boroughs meet the NSNO target of
responding to referrals of new people found sleeping rough in London within 24
rough sleepers are helped off the streets and into one of three NSNO hub
facilities staffed by a team of assessment and reconnection workers. The hubs
are places where people can be assessed any time day or night in an environment
away from the street.
Since April 2011,
Thames Reach’s outreach teams have helped over 2,800 rough sleepers into NSNO.
67% of rough sleepers who are new to the streets don’t spend a second night
there according to statistics compiled from data collected by outreach workers in 2014-15.
Reach’s outreach teams are out and about across the capital every night of the year, acting
as a safety net for some of society’s most vulnerable men and women. Outreach
workers and volunteers find and engage with rough sleepers in a
bid to help them off the streets.
are you homeless or know someone sleeping rough, please call Street Link on

about rough sleepers in their area.
