Homes & property Report rough sleeping and street begging

Tell us about people begging or sleeping on the street

If you've seen someone sleeping rough in Greater Manchester, contact the No Second Night Out service:

phone: 0345 112 8128



They will make contact with the rough sleeper, find them emergency accommodation to get them off the streets and then more permanent housing to help them keep off the streets.

If you've seen someone begging in the city centre, or you've been a victim of, or witnessed, antisocial behaviour associated with begging, report it to Greater Manchester Police on their non-emergency number: 101 or online at

The police will attend to see if the beggar needs any support, and help them get the most appropriate services.
