Question

1 How many individual rough sleepers have been identified in your area during the calendar year 2019 (January to December)?

2 If known, how many individual rough sleepers have been identified in your area during the calendar years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018? Please provide an answer for any of those years for which you have data.

3 If available, how many of the rough sleepers identified during 2019 were found accommodation?

4 Please could you explain or link to what your authority does to identify rough sleepers and assist them to come off the streets.

Answer

This is a nil return. We have no individual rough sleepers in our area. On occasion applicants do state that they have slept rough but this will generally either have been the night before or in another authority.
