No Second Night Out is set up to help people who have nowhere to go and will have to sleep rough. It is not for people who always sleep on the streets.
How do I contact the No Second Night Out project?
You should contact the council in the town or city that you are in. If the council think it is suitable they will offer you temporary accommodation and support through No Second Night Out.
The No Second Night Out project offers emergency accommodation for a short term stay while they work with you on a plan to end your homelessness. To access this service you WILL need to contact your local authority (Council) for a referral. To get the number of the Local Authority you are click this link or ring Freephone 08088084994.
Or you can contact Streetlink if you are sleeping rough or you’re concerned about someone sleeping rough, Streetlink will connect you to local support and services you may need. Telephone 0300 500 0914 or contact them via their website www.streetlink.org.uk.
The No Second Night Out service aims to have a plan in place within 72 hours and will try to move you to more appropriate accommodation with or without support services within that time. The plan will be made up of actions for you, the Council and the rough sleepers outreach team to carry out to help end your homelessness. If you do not have a local connection to Worcestershire, they will work with you to reconnect you to support services in your home area/country within 24 hours.
The emergency accommodation used by No Second Night Out is one large (shared) room with shared facilities at the Worcester YMCA. You will be provided with a roll mat and sleeping bag. There is a shower and washing facilities. Food is available when you arrive and breakfast available in the morning.
You will meet with the rough sleepers outreach team shortly after you have arrived to discuss your plan and any support you need. The emergency accommodation at the YMCA is open from 9:30pm to 11:00pm and you will need to leave by 8am after breakfast.
