But councils should be certain that they are offering someone real help that will resolve their homelessness.</p><p>The Department does not hold information on the number of homeless people offered reconnections. More people will be offered help under the homelessness legislation following the commencement of the Homelessness Reduction Act in April 2018. From this point our new data requirements will generate more detailed information about applicants who are referred from one local authority to another for help because of their local connections.</p><p> </p>
