Framework's Free Rough Sleeper Helpline
This week we unveiled a new window display at our Nottingham City Centre branch. We have donated part of our window space to Framework to publicise their Rough Sleeper Helpline which can be used across Nottinghamshire for anyone who sees a rough sleeper or is sleeping rough themselves.
Framework offer a mixture of accommodation services, help at home, substance misuse treatment and employment services to create a safety net and platform for deep and lasting change, building better and brighter futures. Their Partnerships Officer, Amy Longstaff said; “We are continuing to see high levels of rough sleeping in Nottingham. With temperatures decreasing, now more than ever we would urge anybody who sees someone sleeping rough to contact Framework’s free Rough Sleeper Hotline on 0800 066 5356 or text SOT to 80800. This way, our Street Outreach team can locate the individuals and support them into accommodation and services.”
We have supported Framework’s helpline financially over the last few years as part of donations from The Nottingham totalling more than £100,000 plus £55,000 in fundraising to support the fight against homelessness.
