Rough sleepers in Stoke-on-Trent are in line for extra support thanks to more than £460,000 of Government funding.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council has been awarded the funding from the ‘Rough Sleeping Initiative’ to support the city’s most vulnerable residents.

The funding will enable the city council to continue to deliver vital services to people sleeping rough or at risk of sleeping rough.

The cash will be spent on the recruitment of a number of specialist staff which will be responsible for working with people sleeping rough, supporting them into accommodation and ensuring that people do not leave institutions – such as hospitals or prison – with nowhere safe to go.


And finally … if you are travelling to or from Stoke, be aware that Glebe St will be closed between Station Rd and Lytton St junction, from today through until September. This is due to works to connect the Goods Yard development to the District Heat Network.
