Camden Routes off the Street (Camden RTS) provides a street-based outreach service targeting those who engage in ‘street activity’ e.g. rough sleeping, street drinking, begging, sex working and street-based drug use, in order to stop the activity from continuing. RTS support people by:

  • moving rough sleepers into accommodation
  • returning home in planned and supported way
  • supporting drug and alcohol users to access treatment
  • supporting people with physical and mental health problems to access medical help
  • stopping anti-social behaviour on streets
  • supporting people to exit street-based prostitution
  • working with hostels and housing units to support their clients to maintain accommodation and avoid eviction

They also operate a building-based service (The Hub) located in Camden Town where people can access a variety of support services provided by CGL and partnership agencies (see below for location).
