Sussex Outreach Service (SOS) provides assertive outreach and support to rough sleepers across North, West and East Sussex. We work with partner agencies and local authorities to help rough sleepers move off the streets. Working closely with StreetLink, the 24 hour rough sleeper referral line, there is a rapid response to rough sleepers where housing, social and health care needs are assessed with a focus on reconnection. Alongside the outreach service, we provide pop up hubs that offer rough sleepers a safe place for assessment away from the streets and help us to tackle anti-social street behaviour and reduce rough sleeping. The pop up hubs are not in fixed locations, meaning we can move them to areas where they are most needed.
