    Information for rough sleepers

The City of London Corporation works year-round on getting rough sleepers into accommodation. Our commissioned outreach service is on the streets looking out for rough sleepers every day, all weeks to offer emergency accommodation.

If you see someone sleeping rough and you think they are suffering the effects of exposure to cold weather, please contact emergency services on 999.

Sleeping rough or worried about someone who is?

If you are concerned about a rough sleeper, or sleeping rough yourself, you can report it online:

StreetLink connects rough sleepers to local services. If you see someone rough sleeping, always contact StreetLink, the pan-London reporting mechanism.

The City of London Corporation Outreach Team responds to all new information with immediate effect.
