Addaction Cornwall provide drug and alcohol support in Cornwall and will now, together with Cornwall Housing, have a team of outreach workers to engage and support some of Cornwall’s most vulnerable people currently living on the street.
Many people who are forced to sleep on the streets have multiple complex needs such as drug and alcohol and mental health issues. Our outreach workers will develop personalised care plans for rough sleepers, supporting them into housing and treatment services.
The project will run in partnership with the charity Homeless Link’s StreetLink service.
If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough you can send an alert to StreetLink through the mobile app, www.streetlink.org.uk, or by calling 0300 500 0914. The referral will be sent to Addaction Cornwall and an outreach worker will go to the location where the rough sleeper was seen to engage and support them.
