Rough Sleeping

What Is Available For Those Sleeping Rough In Redcar & Cleveland
Rough Sleeping

Any agency or individual who identifies a rough sleeper is encouraged to make a report directly to the local authority in which the rough sleeper has been seen or to the national hot line. Reports made via the national service will be forwarded onto the local authority to respond.

Within Redcar & Cleveland there are currently no dedicated outreach support services for rough sleepers This reflects the low number of rough sleepers within the borough at anyone time, It is proposed that Redcar & Cleveland will work towards the development of services reflecting the five principles of NSNO, responding to the needs of rough sleepers when they are reported to the local authority. This will include verification of reports of rough sleeping, investigation into the circumstances that led to rough sleeping and officers will try and find a solution for each rough sleeper. This work will include referral to other support and specialist services who may be required to break the cycle of rough sleeping.

The five principles of the No Second Night Out (NSNO) approach are:
