The Devon and Cornwall Rough Sleeper Partnership (DCRSP) has been operational since 2011. Its membership is made up of Local Authorities, Street Outreach Providers, Homeless Link and other voluntary organisations providing services to rough sleepers throughout Devon and Cornwall.
The aim of the group is to provide a co-ordinated service to rough sleepers who migrate through the two counties ensuring that they are supported in a positive and appropriate way through the Governments "No Second Night Out" agenda.
In February 2012 the Partnership introduced a 24 hour phone line. The purpose of the phone line is that anyone who comes across a rough sleeper can call and give details of where they have seen the person. The information is then passed to the nearest Outreach Team who will engage that person within 48 hours of the call to provide support and advice to help them.
The call can be made anonymously or you can leave your details and the Outreach Worker will give you an update should you wish.
