JIMMY'S JOINS FORCES WITH CITY COUNCIL AND POLICE IN NEW INITIATIVE

Jimmy's Cambridge is pleased to be supporting the City council and local police in a new pilot initiative focussing on Cambridge's night time street activity. Extra police officers will be conducting patrols around areas of the city centre on 6 nights a month at night time to identify those on the street. Jimmy’s will be offering up to two emergency beds for those that are sleeping rough. The police will attempt to engage with these individuals to ascertain if they are:

  1. street homeless and rough sleeping
  2. wishing to engage in services (Jimmy’s)
  3. Not homeless


Should any individuals need to come to Jimmy’s the police will signpost them directly to the assessment centre to be booked in, initially, on a one night only basis. Jimmy’s will be providing one extra overnight staff member on the nights the pilot is running, basic accommodation overnight, breakfast next day and offer skilled staff to work with the person to either be signposted to services such as Street Outreach, placed on our presentation list and asked to present daily as normal or, if possible, booked into a bed.
