'No Second Night Out' for district's rough sleepers
11:24am 4th October 2012
(Updated 11:24am 4th October 2012)
The Harrogate Homeless Project’s launched a new scheme to help rough sleepers in the Harrogate District.
‘No Second Night Out’ has been rolled out to localised of the country after being piloted in London.
It’s funded by the government’s Homelessness Transition Fund which awarded Harrogate Homeless Project with £240,000 for the three year project.
Liz Hancock, the Harrogate Homeless Project Manager says: “The No Second Night Out team will make contact with the rough sleeper and, if agreeable, will provide emergency shelter.
“Each rough sleeper will be individually assessed and will be offered a single service offer of accommodation with a continued support package to prevent a return to the streets.
The Homelessness Transition Fund Project Leader for Harrogate says: “The idea is that anybody, any agencies like the police, the hospital, can report a rough sleeper, or someone who discloses to them that they have got nowhere to sleep tonight can make a referral to us.
“Likewise, the general public can make a referral to us as well and we will be doing a lot of promotion across the district in the coming weeks so that people can do that.”
The scheme was launched in Harrogate on Monday 1, October and on the first day the project had eight referrals.
