Street homelessness

We aim to minimise the need for anyone to resort to sleeping rough. In order to achieve this, our aims are

  • To meet and support individuals, in Southampton, who are street homeless or are imminently at risk of street homelessness
  • To assist people sleeping rough to exit a street lifestyle by accessing appropriate services to meet their needs
  • To support individuals in the positive choices they make that prevent them from returning to the street
  • To reconnect people, where appropriate, to their local area so that they can access the most appropriate services to meet their needs

You can contact us

We need to know
