If you are already sleeping rough, it’s really important that you speak to the housing team at your local council so that they know that you need accommodation and support. You can read our tips on speaking to your local council to help you get the support you need.

If you have no choice but to sleep rough tonight, it’s important to try to keep yourself as safe as you can, and to approach local street homelessness services for support. If you have access to the internet or a mobile phone, you can call the Youth Homeless Helpline, free of charge, on 0800 328 0292. Highly trained Llamau colleagues and volunteers will help you to access safe temporary accommodation and provide advice on how to keep yourself safe. 

The helpline is open through the night and over the weekend:

Monday - Thursday : 5pm - 9am

Over the weekend: 5pm Friday - 9am Monday

You can also use the StreetLink website or app to connect with local services, such as day centres, outreach teams or night shelters who may be able to help you find somewhere to stay or give you practical advice. 

If you are in immediate danger, you should call the emergency services on 999.
