Preventing homelessness – Street Outreach
The Outreach Team work with individuals who are sleeping rough on the street, in car parks, bus shelters, under bridges and in abandoned derelict buildings. The aim is to help people off the street, to engage with the wider range of NOAH’s services and to get them into safe accommodation, which is an essential prerequisite to helping them to improve the quality of their lives. It is the start of a long journey with many challenges and we are prepared to walk with each person every step of the way.
The Team work in close collaboration with the Local authority’s public health services, the mental health providers, the Police and a myriad of other organisations. It is truly a joint effort which, when it works, is hugely effective.
