To tell Stockport council you are homeless:
To tell Stockport homes about someone who is sleeping rough:
If you would like support through the process, or if you don't qualify as legally homeless, it is best to go to one of the local drop in centres who can advise you on what options are available for you.
If you are aware of someone who is sleeping rough, please contact Stockport Homes on 0161 474 4237 or email email@example.com with details of when and where you saw them and what they looked like.
There are outreach workers covering different areas in the city to connect with people who are rough sleeping and helping them to get inside if possible. Each individual is assessed so that appropriate accommodation can be found based on their needs.
There could be cases where accommodation providers may feel that they are not able to accommodate someone for example through violent behaviour, but the underlying principles of SWEP mean that every effort is made to find somewhere suitable.Read more about SWEP
