To inform Housing Options Service Trafford (HOST) about someone who is sleeping rough:
Please call 999 if someone is unwell or distressed. Don't put yourself in danger or approach someone acting strangely, even to help.
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
