Rough sleeping numbers rise

 
March 13th 2014
 

Rough sleeping continues to rise across England according to the latest statistics from the UK Government.

The Autumn 2013 total of rough sleeping counts and estimates in England was 2,414 up five per cent from the previous year, and a rise of 37 per cent from the same time two years ago.

London had 543 rough sleepers, which accounted for 22 per cent of the national figure.

This is the first year the number of rough sleepers in London has decreased (by three per cent), however the number of rough sleepers in the rest of England has increased by seven per cent.

All 326 local housing authorities in England provided a figure. Counts were made by 48 local authorities and estimates provided by 278 local authorities.
