The number of people sleeping rough on Dudley's streets is small, but we believe that every person has the right to have a safe, long term home. In Dudley there are services in place to ensure that no person who sleeps rough needs to spend a second night out on the streets. Dudley Council's Homelessness Prevention Team will work with each rough sleeper to secure an overnight place of warmth and safety and will work with the person to secure long term suitable accommodation.
For many vulnerable people, the journey from sleeping rough to having a home of their own is often a daunting prospect. We work together with our partners to provide a support network that helps rough sleepers. Our teams are committed to working with individuals to provide accommodation, hot meals, medical treatment and ultimately a better future.
Our collaborative effort, supported by your donations, will turn small change into a big change. We will work with selected delivery partners who have a focus on preventing rough sleeping by providing pro-active help to rough sleepers and helping them to find a long term home. Our delivery partners have been selected to have a supportive but focussed approach to ensure that donations are used in a way that helps to positively change lives rather than to sustain entrenched rough sleeping.
