If you see someone sleeping rough in our district you can report it on the Streetlink website (www.streetlink.org.uk). Streetlink is the national rough sleeping reporting mechanism. The service enables members of the public to quickly connect rough sleepers to local services. You can also report that someone is sleeping rough by telephoning Streetlink on 03005000914. The aim of the service is to reduce rough sleeping and single homelessness.

Streetlink leaflet - Please note local services are limited and therefore it will not always be possible to find and make contact with those rough sleepers reported.
If you are homeless and can't afford veterinary treatment for your pet, looking for a Hostel that is pet friendly or trying to find a pet fostering service, find out more by clicking on the following link www.moretodogstrust.org.uk/ or visit the Animal Rescue website for information www.leicesteranimalrescue.co.uk
We carry out a survey of statutory/voluntary agencies and faith groups each year to establish the level of rough sleeping in the district and also send an estimate of rough sleeping to the Department for Communities and Local Government. We are pleased to report that the number of rough sleepers seen in our district throughout the year is very low. We do offer a Housing Advice Service to prevent rough sleeping and in extreme weather conditions, we assist rough sleepers to find accommodation.
