Local day centres and services for rough sleepers

Not all beggars are homeless.The experience of the Council’s Street Population Outreach Team is that the majority of people begging in the borough have accommodation and many use the money they make from begging to fund alcohol and drug habits

The Council asks residents and visitors to consider the consequences of giving money to beggars. If you would like to help we would encourage you to donate to organisations that work with vulnerable and homeless adults in the borough.
