Leeds City Council ensures that there is always enough emergency accommodation for all rough sleepers.
While some people may for whatever reason not accept the support offered, the council says that it will always provide and continue to offer that support.
Officers at Leeds Housing Options recorded 435 homelessness prevention actions by assisting people into private rented sector accommodation alone between April 2016 and March 2017, and are on course to exceed that this financial year.
Private rented accommodation is just one of the options for people facing homelessness.
If you see someone sleeping out please let them know that they don’t need to.
Contact 0113 245 9445 during office hours or 07891 271939 at any other time.
They can then access emergency accommodation and the opportunity to secure long-term housing and support.
