Temperatures are dropping – if you see someone sleeping rough, tell StreetLink

StreetLink exists to help end rough sleeping by helping members of the public to connect people sleeping rough with the local services that can support them. 

If you see someone sleeping rough this autumn and winter, you can alert Lambeth, or other local authority if you’re out and about, by sending an alert to StreetLink using their website:


You can also contact Lambeth’s Safer Streets Team directly who will offer emergency accomodation to any rough sleepers during cold weather, when the Met Office forecasts three or more nights of zero degrees celsius.

Telephone: 020 7501 0601 
Email: sstlambeth@cri.org.uk

If you are contacting the team with concerns about someone else, please provide details of where you have seen them and what they look like; the more information the better.

As the weather gets cold, help rough sleepers

If you see someone sleeping rough in this cold weather, please help by reporting it using www.streetlink.org.uk

Mayor Sadiq Khan has opened an emergency homeless shelter as temperatures plummet in London.

Should you see anyone sleeping rough in West Norwood or beyond, please make sure to report it so that they can access a warm place to sleep. Please also keep an eye on elderly or vulnerable neighbours.
