What we do

Our team go out in the early hours of the morning responding to new referrals, as well as visiting known rough sleeping sites, in order to make contact with people who are sleeping on the streets of Cambridgeshire.

Our intention is to break down barriers and build relationships with people. This then enables us to understand the reasons why a person ended up on the streets in the first place and ensures that we offer a route away from homelessness that will bring about lasting change.

To do this, we work in partnership with multiple organisations, enabling people to access the support services they need and realise their potential. This includes helping people to access drug and alcohol services, stable and safe accommodation and physical and mental health services.

We can support you if:

  • You live in the Cambridgeshire area
  • You are currently sleeping rough or at risk of losing your home
