harrow_council_logoWe need your help!

We would like to make sure anyone sleeping rough in Harrow is not missed. As Neighbourhood Champions you are ideally placed to highlight any concerns around homeless, thank you in advance.

What to do if you are concerned about someone who is sleeping rough.

Should you be concerned for someone sleeping rough please call Streetlink 0300 5000 914 and leave a message. You need to give them a description of the person, where they sleep (be as specific as possible, road/building name and post code if you know it) and about the time they are there, you can also include any other information. You can also do this online at www.streetlink.org.uk there is even a Streetlink app for your mobile. They will pass the information to the team that cover Harrow and come out to look for them.

You can refer a rough sleeper to FirmFoundation, Harrow’s Homeless Charity. This can be done through the ‘Contact Us’ page www.firmfoundation.org.uk/contact/ or by calling 020 8426 5515.
