How to help
There are several ways to help those who are sleeping rough connect with the local services that can support them:
- Use Streetlink. You can use their website or download their app from the iTunes Store or Google Play. You do not need to engage directly with the person you are trying to help.
- Talk to the person and direct them to Jimmy’s, so we can offer immediate support.
- If you think the person you are concerned about is in immediate danger or needs urgent care, please call 999.
While a personal choice, we advise not to give money to those who are begging – instead your money can be used effectively by charities such as Jimmy’s to provide front line services to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Jimmy’s does not charge a fee to access its emergency accommodation.
