Our Commitment to No Second Night Out

Last Updated: 10 November 2021

We want to find and support all identified rough sleepers.

We are able to do this within office hours.

To reach rough sleepers out of hours we need other organisations and the local community to tell us.

Place of safety:

We can offer interview facilities at Kendal Town Hall from 10am to 4pm.

Emergency accommodation:

We may provide emergency accommodation but this will depend on assessment and availability. We cannot guarantee it will be in South Lakeland.

Reconnection:

We will try to reconnect rough sleepers with their local community or country where appropriate.
