Newport Rough Sleepers Intervention Team provides an outreach service and drop-in centre for street homeless people.
The team delivers humanitarian aid, support and advice to people that are sleeping rough or are vulnerably housed within Newport.
Experienced staff support clients by providing humanitarian aid in the form of breakfast, hot drinks, sleeping bags, warm clothing, toiletries and help in locating further local provision throughout the day and evening. We also help to meet current needs by offering a wide range of advice and by facilitating access to the most appropriate, relevant and often specialist services. This will include housing advice, referrals to supported accommodation, benefit advice, referrals for all types of healthcare and referrals to substance misuse centres.
The drop-in centre provides a safe environment off the street to facilitate our support work. Here, we offer access to a telephone and computer and help to complete forms, applications and referrals to our partners in relation to their current needs.
