Homeless In Brighton: How Can You Help?

All this week, Heart has been raising awareness of homelessness in Brighton and Hove.

There are more than 1,000 people sleeping rough in the area every year. 

How you can help

Members of the public can help rough sleepers by contacting Streetlink to share concerns about individuals who are sleeping rough. The details are passed to the street outreach service and professional outreach workers go out to offer help to the individual. Information can be sent via www.streetlink.org.uk or by calling 0300 500 0914.
