TfL require ‘Life off the Streets’ service provider for £3m framework

3rd March 2020

Transport for London has released a prior information notice for an administration, defence and social security services framework. The contract is worth £3 million.


As part of the Mayor’s ‘Life off the Streets’ programme, Transport For London (TfL), on behalf of the Greater London Authority (GLA), gives early notice of an upcoming opportunity for an immediate access assessment and short-term accommodation service for people sleeping rough in London. This will be a building-based service which offers immediate access from the streets to shelter, assessment and support. The service will aim to help people who:

  • are aged 18 and over; and
  • are currently sleeping rough in Greater London; and
  • have 2 or more Bedded Down Street Contacts on the Chain system (and so are not eligible for existing pan-London immediate-access services such as Somewhere Safe to Stay and No Second Night Out hubs); and
  • do not have an identified option of accommodation available to them locally.

The service will provide support to rough sleepers who are likely to be able to access other suitable accommodation options, within a short period of time, after entering the service.


Delivery of the service is anticipated to commence on 01 October.
