The Safer Streets Team (SST) provides a street-based outreach service targeting those who engage in ‘street activity’ e.g. rough sleeping, street drinking, begging, sex working and street-based drug use, in order to stop the activity from continuing. SST support people by:

  • moving rough sleepers into accommodation
  • returning home in planned and supported way
  • supporting drug and alcohol users to access treatment
  • supporting people with physical and mental health problems to access medical help
  • stopping anti-social behaviour on streets
  • supporting people to exit street-based prostitution
  • working with hostels and housing units to support their clients to maintain accommodation and avoid eviction
