How to help rough sleepers during the heatwave

Temperatures are set to sore this weekend
Here’s how you can help rough sleepers:
  • If you’re concerned about someone who is homeless, call our hostel, The Elms, on 01442 800131. We’re open 24 hours a day, helping rough sleepers stay safe in the heat and connecting them with local support.
  • Help rough sleepers avoid dehydration by giving them a bottle of water
  • Offer a bottle of sunscreen to avoid them getting burned if they can’t escape the sun
  • Hand over a hat. If you have one spare or are able to buy one, please give it to somebody that is homeless to help them remain cool and avoid sunstroke.
