Rough Sleeper Service

Our Rough Sleeper Service works across Kent to support people living on the streets. We assess people’s housing, social and healthcare needs, working with partner agencies to help them move towards a more positive future.

It was freezing and Lisa brought me a warm coat and a new blanket. She met up with me regularly and just knowing that she was there, trying to find me somewhere to live was so reassuring. It made me feel that someone was on my side.

How will you help me?

We can help you if you are rough sleeping, or have nowhere to live. We'll ask you to tell us about your situation so that we can find you housing which best meets your needs.

 We have supported housing projects across Kent which provide safe and secure accommodation.

We also work with private landlords with suitable property to let. If you are housed in private accommodation, we can offer ongoing support to make sure that your tenancy runs smoothly.

You can get help by contacting us yourself, or someone else can refer you to us. Please call 0800 567 7699 or fill in the form at the bottom of this page to tell us more about your situation. To give us more detailed information, fill in our referral form Microsoft Office document iconhere  and email it to helpline@porchlight.org.uk
