Who we can help

Whether you’re sleeping on the streets, sofa surfing or at risk of becoming homeless, we can support you to access the services you need. 

No matter your background or what led to your homelessness, we can help you to find suitable accommodation and support within our services. We can assist single homeless individuals from the ages of 18+.

If you are under the age of 18, please contact your local P2i Hub: 
www.p2i.org.uk/hubs.asp


 
We are unable to house those with no local connection, however we may be able to assist with reconnecting you to your local area, unless there is reason why you cannot return. 
 

I am worried about someone who is homeless.

Thank you for your concern. You can alert the correct services of a rough sleeper by visiting Street Link, which will alert the correct authority or outreach team.

Do this by visiting: https://www.streetlink.org.uk/
If you know someone who is at risk of becoming homeless or who is homeless in Sedgemoor, you can speak with our Outreach Team who will ensure this individual gets the support they need.

Please call Mandy: 07436 090421  or  Steve: 07592 380824 or on weekends call Lindley House on 01823 254557
