- An organisation called Thamesreach runs the Pan London Rapid Response Outreach Service. The service is available 24 hours a day and will respond to reports of all new rough sleepers by arranging an urgent visit to the bedding down site, verifying the rough sleeper, assessing their needs, linking them in with support services and emergency accommodation where appropriate.
- Referring a new rough sleeper to Streetlink will help ensure a rapid response, and coordinated assistance between services and between councils.
- Making a referral to Streetlink is quick and straightforward. When you do please give a clear and specific location of the bedding down site.
