As the winter draws in we are continuing our commitment that there really is no need to be sleeping rough in Nottingham this winter.
Homelessness is on the rise across the country, but the City Council continues to fund initiatives to address the issue.
Every year we work with our partners, including Framework, Emmanuel House, the Fire Service, hostels and local churches, to implement a cold weather plan to prevent and respond to rough sleeping.
Last year, we were able to prevent 258 people from sleeping rough and this year we have secured an extra £420,000 to help fund this work and provide extra bed spaces to cope with an additional demand.

If you see someone on the street this winter, please contact Framework on 08000665356 so that they can offer support.
