  • Provision of a Winter Bedding Pack, which will be targeted at the most vulnerable people,
    particularly the elderly and struggling families
  • Provision of a Food Parcel: including dried and tinned food and toiletries
  • Delivery of additional benefit entitlement checks

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, then you can make a referral to StreetLink who can provide additional support.
