Get Help Glasgow launches to raise awareness of available support for people rough sleeping
The Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness is delighted to share that we’ve launched Get Help Glasgow, our inaugural campaign highlighting where the people of Glasgow can go for support if they, or someone in their community, are rough sleeping.
No one should be sleeping on the streets, and winter can be a tough time for lots of us. Get Help Glasgow aims to share tangible actions people can take this winter if they, or someone they know, is sleeping rough. The campaign is also signposting where to go for further support that exists in the community and can help prevent someone from becoming homeless in the first place.
Glasgow is a compassionate and proactive city of people who look out for each other. But not everyone knows where to look for support or what to do if they are concerned about someone in the community rough sleeping. We’re bringing together the wealth of organisations and services working across Glasgow that are ready to help if someone is rough sleeping or worried about becoming homeless, to one visible, easy to access resource in Get Help Glasgow.
Get Help Glasgow encourages people to call the Rough Sleepers and Vulnerable People (RSVP) free helpline on 0800 027 7466 if they, or someone they know, is rough sleeping to access immediate support. The RSVP helpline is managed by Simon Community Scotland.
For those looking for information and advice on other services that exist in the community, including homeless services and support related to money advice, mental health, food banks and community groups, visit gethelpglasgow.com
