Maggs Day Centre

‘The outreach team had been trying to engage with a lad over the last two years who had spells of rough sleeping and sofa surfing. When Lockdown measures came into place the lad had been rough sleeping and was eligible to be offered temporary accommodation. Since moving into a place where the lad felt safe and was able to sleep well at night his engagement has been really good. His mental health has settled more, and he is now working with our Navigation Team to look at continuing his recovery from substance misuse, look for long-term accommodation, and re-engaging with mental health support.

A lady who had been rough sleeping for several years who had not previously engaged with outreach services. The Outreach team was informed of the lady’s sleeping location and nightly attendance at the Street Kitchen where she had indicated that she would like some help. The outreach team was able to make contact with the lady and offer support to approach the local Council to discuss short-term as well as long-term accommodation options. She is now in temporary accommodation and being supported to move on from this and not return to the streets after Lockdown.’
