How we can help

We identify and work with people over the age of 18 in the City of Cambridge. 

We help rough sleepers on the street or at the day centre by informing them of the options available.

We start the day at 6:00, pointing people to places where they can get food, showers and clothes.

Support we offer

We will give you the information you need to make an informed choice. This might mean giving you a map and a welcome letter if we find you in the morning sleeping out. This will show you where to get a warm shower and clean clothes. There's also the option to create an 'Action Plan'. This means we'll work on an assessment with you to help you find out what housing options are available to you.
