Answer for Streetlink

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Nationally, since it was set up in 2013, StreetLink has taken over 90,000 calls from members of the public and other organisations reporting concerns about rough sleeping, over 70% of which have been in London. I am working with Homeless Link and St Mungo's Broadway to help promote the service through a variety of social media forums and intend to continue my grant funding of £50k next year.
