Inreach Outreach and Jewellery Quarter BID
Changing Futures Inreach Outreach team have been working together with the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District to help rough sleepers in the area get the support they need to live fulfilled lives.
In March 2019, they began working closely with the JQ BID team. “Members of the JQ BID team were concerned about
the number of rough sleepers in their area,” explained Sarah Bruce, a member of the IROR team. “These people frequently combine substance misuse, mental health issues or offending behaviour with their homelessness, which means the problems they face are complex and their behaviour can be challenging. The BID team wanted to help, to connect them with the support they needed to get into accommodation but were not sure how.”
