No Second Night Out - how the North East is tackling rough sleeping

No Second Night Out (NSNO) is a new approach which tries to make sure that anyone new to sleeping on the streets gets help so that they do not have to have a second night there. There are also other approaches aimed at helping those who have been rough sleeping for a while or keep returning to the streets.

In December 2012, the 12 local authorities in the North East, as part of the North East Regional Homelessness Group (NERHG), agreed to adopt the NSNO Standard for helping people who are sleeping rough.
