If you are at risk of sleeping rough…

You can make a homeless application with Wolverhampton Homes by calling 01902 556789.

You can call P3 on 0800 107 6753 or go to P3’s Navigator at 43 School Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 4LR.

If you are already being supported by another service, they may be able to make a referral for emergency accommodation during periods of severe cold weather.

Rough sleeping is by no means unique to Wolverhampton, so at the same time as identifying local solutions that work for our city and its specific needs, we are working with the West Midlands Combined Authority to tackle rough sleeping as part of a coordinated regional response.

Home is a secure base for life

Without this, people cannot lead settled lives, maintain employment and provide an environment to help their children escape poverty. Prolonged periods of homelessness can develop or worsen existing vulnerabilities, such as substance misuse and mental health conditions, which unsettle family and support networks.

We aim to ensure that no-one will sleep rough on the streets of Wolverhampton.

Our aim is to:

  • provide a rapid response to new rough sleepers
  • provide support based on everyone's needs, meaning no-one needs to spend a second night on the street
  • help rough sleepers to access a place of safety
  • reconnect rough sleepers from outside the area with their community
  • where rough sleeping does occur it is rare, brief and non-recurrent.

How to help

If you’re concerned about someone sleeping rough visit to get them help. StreetLink is the nationally recognised way of alerting support agencies to someone who may be sleeping rough. The website can be used by anyone to log details of where someone is seen sleeping rough. Alerts in the Wolverhampton area are passed on to our commissioned outreach service who will visit the location and offer assistance to anyone seen.
