If you're concerned about someone (over the age of 18), that you have seen sleeping rough in Oldham, you can send an alert to StreetLink, either via their website or the streetlink app.
Follow the link to "Take Action Now" and sign yourself in first.
The details you provide are sent to the local outreach service, to help them find the individual and connect them to support. It is important to note that if you think the person you are concerned about is under 18 please do not contact StreetLink but instead call the police.
You'll need to give them this information:
- A specific location for the rough sleeping site. You can do this by using a map to pinpoint the exact location and then providing a written description of the location.
- Details of the time that the rough sleeper has been seen at the location.
- Any information about the rough sleeper that will help find them (gender, approximate age, what the person looks like, what they are wearing).

You will receive details of the action the local authority normally takes when they are told someone is sleeping rough in their area and an update on what has happened as a result of your alert within 10 working days if you have requested it.
StreetLink exists to help end rough sleeping by enabling members of the public to connect people sleeping rough with the local services that can support them.
