ROUGH sleepers are being helped by Sedgemoor council this winter as the authority continues to work closely with their partners at ARC, YMCA Dulverton Group and Julian House.
The council has a range of experienced and knowledgeable staff working closely with the most vulnerable members of our community to help them access support, healthcare and accommodation.
If you know of someone sleeping rough, the council urges you report it through Streetlink on 0300 500 0914 or www.streetlink.org.uk and their outreach service will make contact with them.
Anyone wishing to donate to the local homeless charities this year can do so by contacting YMCA DG, Arc or Westfield Church.

You can also take donations to the council’s drop-off point (for Bridgwater): George Williams Centre, Friarn Avenue, Bridgwater, TA6 3RF. People are asked to call 0333 200 1616 before making a donation to ensure someone is available to receive it.
