Street Outreach

There is a dedicated team of officers who work with our street community every day. Case officers specialise in mental health, substance misuse and welfare needs of vulnerable people. The team visits the street community and offers help. Even if it is sometimes rejected, they keep going back to try and help.

Contact the Street Outreach team to report any concerns about the Mansfield street community.

DueDue to social distancing measures, some of our food banks and soup kitchens are closed to the public. However, a takeaway service is available. The Beacon is currently closed due to social distancing but they continue to work closely with Mansfield District Council and Framework to support rough sleepers.

If you use food banks and are in need of extra help you can contact the Nottinghamshire Community Support Hub at Nottinghamshire Coronavirus Community Support Hub (opens in a new window) or call 0300 500 8080.
