star this property answer text <p>The Government's latest annual Rough Sleeping Statistics, published on 31 January 2019, include people sleeping rough in make shift camps but no separate figures about the types of sites where people are sleeping rough are recorded.</p><p>These statistics show the total number of people counted or estimated to be sleeping rough in each local authority area in England, on a single night in Autumn 2018 was 4,677. This was down by 74 people or 2 per cent from the 2017 total of 4,751 and was up 2,909 people or 165 per cent from the 2010 total of 1,768.</p><p>Local authorities use a specific definition to identify people sleeping rough. This includes people sleeping or who are about to bed down in open air locations and other places including tents, cars, and makeshift shelters.</p><p>The full definition of people sleeping rough is as follows:</p><p><em>People sleeping, about to bed down (sitting on/in or standing next to their bedding) or actually bedded down in the open air (such as on the streets, in tents, doorways, parks, bus shelters or encampments). People in buildings or other places not designed for habitation (such as stairwells, barns, sheds, car parks, cars, derelict boats, stations, or “bashes” which are makeshift shelters, often comprised of cardboard boxes). The definition does not include people in hostels or shelters, people in campsites or other sites used for recreational purposes or organised protest, squatters or travellers. Bedded down is taken to mean either lying down or sleeping. About to bed down includes those who are sitting in/on or near a sleeping bag or other bedding.</em></p><p>These statistics are available at the following link:</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>This Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy which sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period. This year, Rough Sleeping Initiative investment totals £46 million and has been allocated to 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 750 additional staff and over 2,600 bed spaces.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Troubled Families Programme is a £920 million programme to help up to 400,000 families with multiple and complex needs, including those at risk of becoming involved in crime and serious violence. The Supporting Families Against Youth Crime Fund has provided a further £9.8 million to help 21 places further enhance how their local Troubled Families Programme helps tackle youth violence and gangs. Each of the projects are designed to respond directly to the needs of their community and so the support provided to families varies in each local area. They include diversionary activities such as boxing and residential courses, resilience building, out of hours mentors, conflict resolution and whole family counselling. Local areas awarded funding will provide monitoring data later this year.</p> more like this

The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>In March we allocated an additional £1 million of bespoke funding to support ex- members of the armed forces who are or are at risk of becoming homeless. The funding has been allocated between the Combined Authorities and the Greater London Authority, and will be used to develop new services and support them in engaging with existing service provision.</p><p>Accommodation data for Armed force veterans is limited as the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government does not collect statistics on whether or not people sleeping rough have served in the armed forces.</p><p>However, the Combined Homelessness and Information Network stats suggest that 3 per cent of the rough sleeping population in London have served in the armed Forces.</p><p>We do not collect data on how many people, owed a statutory homeless duty, are veterans. However, in April 2018 my Department introduced a data capturing tool, the Homelessness Case Level Information Collection referred to as H-CLIC which captures the support needs of a household, including if someone has a support need as a result of being in the armed forces. The latest H-CLIC data for October to December 2018 shows that of the 61,410 households in England who were owed a homelessness duty in England, 0.72 per cent had support needs because they had previously served in the armed forces. This does not include households that did not approach their local authority for help or those who do not require additional support because they previously served.</p><p>In terms of prisoners released, during October to December 2018, 1.8 per cent of the 61,410 households owed a homeless duty in England were homeless on departure from prison.</p><p>Information is not held on people previously in receipt of universal credit who are owed a homeless duty.</p>
