Support for rough sleepers during cold weather

With the exceptionally cold weather, South Somerset District Council faces more and more challenges. One challenge faced is the issue of people sleeping rough.

Sleeping rough at any time is very dangerous but particularly so during such cold weather.

As such, if you are concerned about anyone who is sleeping rough during cold weather, please visit the StreetLink website. This service gives local authorities information about people sleeping rough in order that they can access the support they need.

South Somerset District Council are in regular contact with all the rough sleepers that we are aware of and are finding temporary/emergency solutions for them during the cold weather.
