The COVID-19 Rough Sleepers Task Group

This multi-agency group - comprised of Telford & Wrekin Council Housing Solutions, Maninplace, Stay, Stars, Social Care, Mental Health and the NHS - who meet daily (Monday to Friday) and have done so since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Its objective is to respond to those who are rough sleeping and bring them in, whatever their financial or legal status.

A team of Tenancy Sustainment workers from Telford & Wrekin Council, Stay outreach and Maninplace’s Urban KiP engage with individuals to provide emergency accommodation, food and clothing. They also help rough sleepers relocate back to their families in other parts of the UK or repatriate to their home country by providing financial support to access transport, and help them secure ID documents, passports and interpreters if required.
