PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

As part of the Council’s emergency response, over 170 rough sleepers have been helped off the streets and into accommodation where it is possible to self-isolate.

Together with charities and voluntary groups in the borough, those being supported are being offered assistance such as laundry and frequent welfare checks.

The Council’s street-based services are continuing to see new people arriving on the streets of Camden and are working every day to support these people as quickly as possible.

If you’re worried about a rough sleeper, you can use the Camden Safer Streets app or phone 020 7846 3535 to let the Council know, who will then send officers to help. Find out more at camdenrts.co.uk
