Other ways to help


Our volunteers support StreetLink by handling alerts, contacting local services and reporting back to members of the public on what has happened as a result of their alert. If you are interested in getting involved, please email volunteer@streetlink.org.uk

Spread the word

The more people that know about StreetLink’s service, the more people we’ll be able to help. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and share with your friends, family and colleagues. Thank you!


Rough Sleepers Cymru, an alliance of organisations dedicated to ending rough sleeping, is asking people in Wales to sign up as Streetlink Champions. You can sign up here, and posters can be emailed to you along with ideas on how to raise awareness of Streetlink with family, friends and colleagues.

Volunteering in the sector

If you are interested in volunteering in the homeless sector, think about taking one of the following steps:

  • Approach organisations directly to see whether they take on volunteers; most will be grateful for the support. For a list of homelessness organisations, visit Homeless England: You can search by specialist subjects such as alcohol, care leavers or day centres.
  •  Look for advertised volunteer positions on websites like Do-it and Work Relief.
  • Contact your local council - they will know about local organisations and what opportunities might be available.
