Outreach

On the Streets

We go out and about in our community to check on rough sleepers, offering hot drinks, support and ensuring that everyone knows how to access our services.

The Shrewsbury Ark Outreach Service is there to help people who cannot or will not access our services via the day centre. Our aim is to go out into the community and get people off the streets and into housing, where we can continue to offer them support.

ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT SOMEONE SLEEPING ROUGH?

Let us know about rough sleepers in your area via Streetlink on

0300 500 0914 or online at www.streetlink.org.uk. We will then react to your report on the next working day. Locating the person of concern, helping them to get off the streets as soon as possible and keeping in regular contact to make sure they don't end up sleeping rough again.

In Accommodation

Finding accommodation is just the first step for many of our clients.

We offer them ongoing support, both practically and emotionally, to feel secure and supported for as long as it takes to feel truly safe and secure in their new home.

We can fund basic household items, help with decorating, setting up utilities and services like Wifi and basic house keeping skills like cooking, cleaning and budgeting.

Most importantly our team is always there to listen, to work through problems and deal with any issues before they escalate.
