Help for the homeless
Written by Harvey Williamson on July 22, 2020
Telford and Wrekin Council have launched a hotline to help people who are homeless, rough sleeping or at risk of becoming homeless. The number is 01952 381925. It’s available for anyone who needs help or advice and it’s there for people to support the homeless by reporting an issue.
A call to the hotline about a rough sleeper will result in a visit to the reported location by an outreach worker who will check on their welfare and offer help to house them immediately and in the longer term.
Anyone who is homeless and calls the hotline will be given their own housing officer as a single point of contact. The housing officer will support them finding accommodation and also help with finding training and work.
Support by reporting: 01952 381925
