star this property answer text <p>Annual England totals for the number of homeless or rough sleeping armed forces leavers from 2013 onward are not available.</p><p>In April 2018, MHCLG introduced a new homelessness data collection called Homelessness Case Level Information Collection (H-CLIC). H-CLIC captures information on all those who engage with local authority homelessness services, including those eligible for temporary accommodation and collects information on the support needs of a household, including support need resulting from being in the armed forces. These show that during October to December 2018, of the 61,410 households owed a homelessness duty in England, 440 required additional support because they formerly served in the armed forces. There are no plans to expand this collection to cover all former armed service personnel to include those who don’t require additional support.</p><p>The latest statistics are available here:</p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804329/Statutory_Homelessness_Statistical_Release_October_to_December__2018.pdf" target="_blank"> https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804329/Statutory_Homelessness_Statistical_Release_October_to_December__2018.pdf </a></p><p>The annual single night snapshot of people sleeping rough across all local areas in England provides some basic demographic information (age, gender, nationality).</p><p>The latest statistics are available here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/rough-sleeping-in-england-autumn-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/rough-sleeping-in-england-autumn-2018 </a></p><p>The Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN) is a multi-agency database which records information about people seen rough sleeping by outreach teams in London across the year. Overall, 6 per cent of people seen sleeping rough by outreach workers across London during 2018/19 had served in the armed forces at some point in their lives. 2 per cent of these were UK nationals - around 115 people.

The Department uses these forecasts to inform policy. We remain committed to delivering safe, secure and affordable housing to people across the country. Our exit from the EU will not change this priority. A key pillar of realising this commitment is our ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s.</p> more like this
