End Rough Sleeping

We believe that, in this day and age, no one should be rough sleeping in Southend. That’s why, since 2013, we have been working hard to reach out to and support more and more people, through our End Rough Sleeping strategy.

Over the last few years, whilst our bed spaces have increased to 174, we have seen a decrease in rough sleepers visiting our Bradbury Day Centre. There are now around 30 people sleeping rough in our town, compared to 98 in the year ending March 2015. This is a fantastic success, but the hard work must continue if we want to End Rough Sleeping completely.


Many people have asked whether we really can End Rough Sleeping in Southend and our answer is: ‘Yes, but we can’t do it alone’.
