Useful information for patients who are homeless in Lincoln

Alcohol and drug use

The A & E Department sees some homeless people who have problems with alcohol or drugs. If you are one of them then there are several things we can do for you:

  • Check that your blood sugar level is within normal range.
  • Treat you with vitamins if you are in a confused or drowsy state.
  • Offer you a prescription for vitamins if you are in danger of a severe deficiency.
  • Fax a referral for you to the Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Team (DART), with your consent. DART will need a way of contacting you over the next few days. If you are staying in Nomad or the YMCA, the staff there will be happy to have the referral sent to them, on your behalf.

If you have no fixed abode at the moment then We Are With You (previously Addaction) are probably the best service for you to contact. They are easy to find as they are in the City Centre. They can be found at:

The New Avenue

The P3 homeless outreach service

P3 are funded by Lincolnshire County Council to provide two services in the county:

  • Floating Support – who work with people to maintain their tenancies and live independently, aiming to prevent people becoming homeless.
  • Street Outreach – who work with people who have found themselves rough sleeping.

Both services have the combined aim to work closely with individuals and positively tackle homelessness across the county.
