New and improved StreetLink

Five years after its launch, StreetLink’s website and mobile apps have been redeveloped to offer improved features.

Street homelessness is on the increase. From 2010 to date, rough sleeping in England has grown by 134%, proving that it is one of the biggest challenges that our society faces.

To help tackle the rise in rough sleeping, Homeless Link developed the StreetLink service, in partnership with St Mungo’s. StreetLink is a website, mobile app and phone line that enables members of the public to connect people sleeping rough in England and Wales to local services and support.

StreetLink’s success over five years

StreetLink was developed in the second half of 2012 and launched that December. In its first five years, the service has received over 92,000 alerts about people sleeping rough and passed the information on to local authorities and outreach teams. Thousands of vulnerable people have been offered vital support or accommodation as a result.
