Chelmsford Rough Sleeper Outreach Service up for Prestigious Award

Chelmsford’s Rough Sleeper Outreach Service run by CHESS and Chelmsford City Council and in partnership with Essex County Council and eight other Essex Authorities, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Working in Partnership Award at the Essex Housing Excellence Awards.

The Awards recognise high-quality developments, services and or individuals from the public, private and voluntary sector, and promote best practice across the county.  

The award is in recognition of how services have come together to build relationships with entrenched rough sleepers, supporting them to move towards and into sustained employment, leaving both homelessness and street life styles behind. 

This has been particularly important during the pandemic.

The ceremony will be held on 3rd of November 2022 and you can keep up to date with all the goings on by following both CHESS and Essex Housing Excellence Awards on Twitter.

We at Street Support Chelmsford, and the wider Street Support Network, wish them the very best of luck!
