Simon on the Streets

Simon on the Streets

Want to know more?

Simon on the Streets is an independent charity that works with those who have complex needs and cannot or will not access other services.  Within that group the focus is on people who are homeless and rootless, especially those with issues related to rough sleeping.

The aim of the charity is to bring people leading solitary harmful lives, with little or no vision for a better future in from the margins of society. The charity will achieve this by supporting people to find aspirations and giving unlimited opportunities to achieve sustainable positive change. The support is offered on an entirely outreach basis and is not time limited.  The approach taken with service users is to recognise emotional support as a high value offering and to understand that building a quality relationship with service users will underpin any support given.

Simon on the Streets WEEKLY SOUP-RUN

The Soup-Runs go out on a Tuesday evening in Leeds. The purpose of the Soup-Run is to take out food and drink to those who will be sleeping rough that night. Although these aspects of the work are important the most important part of the project is to have contact with our service users, to show them we are there for them and offer support with making changes in their lives when they are ready to make them. Also by being out in the evening we can offer the practical support of referring people to emergency accommodation when the need arises.
