Broadway also hosts the No Second Night Out (NSNO) project in London and Oxford.
NSNO is a daring new programme that seeks to introduce a step change in the way we respond to those who arrive new to rough sleeping on the streets.
We will provide:
A rapid response to new and returning rough sleepers throughout the week
A Single Service Offer of suitable accommodation and support for new and returning rough sleepers. This will be based on individual assessments and means that no one needs to spend a second night on the street.
A focus on linking people who migrate into the City of Oxford back to accommodation and services where they have a local connection and where they are most likely to sustain a life away from the street.
This will be achieved by:
A highly assertive outreach approach; facilitated by extended outreach coverage and backed up with enforcement actions by outreach workers and other services.
Establishing a hotline to act as a single point of contact for alerting NSNO Oxford and Oxford City Outreach about rough sleepers.
Setting up an assessment unit, where new and returning rough sleepers can receive rapid assessment of their needs and be made a Single Service Offer.
Including reconnection in the Single Service Offer made to rough sleepers.
Prioritising rough sleepers for accommodation/support within the Homeless Network in Oxford.
Effective verification procedures for rough sleepers.
More effective data recording and monitoring.
Involving the public more fully in alerting us to rough sleeping.
Encouraging public involvement with rough sleeping services.
