Welcome to Camden Routes off The Streets
The Camden Routes off The Streets team is commissioned by the London Borough of Camden to end street homelessness and reduce street based anti-social behaviour.
We work with:
- People who are rough sleeping.
- Anyone who uses drugs or drinks alcohol on the streets
- People who beg for money
- People involved in street based prostitution.
What we do:
Through working in partnership with a wide variety of organisations we are able to work creatively with clients to establish individually tailored plans to enable people to get away from their street based lifestyle. This means that we:
- Move rough sleepers into accommodation.
- Support people who have become street homeless in London, who originate from elsewhere, to return home in a planned and supported way.
- Run a multi-agency building based hub in Camden Town. At the hub, located on Greenland Street, rough sleepers can access a wide range of support services provided by both CGL and a number of partnership organizations.
- Help drug and alcohol users to access treatment.
- Support people with mental as well as physical health problems to get the medical help they need.
- Stop anti-social behaviour on the streets of Camden through partnership work with Camden Council and the police alongside other enforcement agencies.
