star this property answer text <p>MHCLG’s latest annual rough sleeping 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>These statistics provide a single night snapshot of people sleeping rough across each local authority in England. The snapshot is taken annually by local authorities using street counts, evidence-based estimates, and estimates informed by spotlight street counts. Local authorities decide, in conjunction with their local partners and based on advice from Homeless Link who verify the rough sleeping statistics collection, to use the approach that they believe will return the most accurate figure to assess the extent of people sleeping rough in their local area.</p><p>The methodology used has been in place since 2010 when it was developed after consultation with local authorities and the voluntary sector with the objective of strengthening the accuracy of the figures. Prior to 2010, there was no requirement for all local authorities to carry out a count or estimate to make an assessment of the number of people sleeping rough in their local area.</p><p>We are confident in the annual rough sleeping statistics and the methodology used. The annual snapshot has never claimed to be a total figure of all those sleeping rough in the country and is a pragmatic approach that provides a representation of those sleeping rough, alongside a reliable and consistent measure of change. The methodology used in England aligns with the approach which is now standard in many parts of the world including Canada, the United States and a number of other European countries.</p><p>All counts and estimates are independently verified by Homeless Link. Homeless Link oversee the whole process, issue clear guidance on how to conduct a count or estimate and actively challenge areas to ensure figures are reliable. Hundreds of local partners and voluntary sector organisations actively engage in the count and producing the estimate which also gives us confidence in the reliability of the statistics.</p><p>Accurately counting or estimating the number of people sleeping rough within a local authority is inherently difficult given the hidden nature of rough sleeping. There are a range of factors that can have an impact on the number of people seen or thought to be sleeping rough on any given night. This includes the weather, where people choose to sleep, the date and time chosen, and the availability of alternatives such as night shelters.</p><p>MHCLG is actively encouraging local authorities with significant numbers of rough sleepers to improve their year-round data on rough sleeping and is working collaboratively with local authorities to develop improved homelessness data and outcomes that can measure progress in reducing rough sleeping and homelessness.</p><p>Alongside our recent overhaul of homelessness statistics, through H-CLIC, to collect detailed case level information about every homelessness application we are also establishing local data pilots which will seek to improve the data collected by a wide range of services which people who sleep rough access</p><p><br>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and ending rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This 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. In its first year, the Rough Sleeping Initiative provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff.</p>

Key examples include the update to the Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), The Integrated Communities Innovation Fund evaluation, a number of studies on reducing homelessness, and the ongoing troubled families evaluation. The results of these projects have provided invaluable insight into the issues and the findings are incorporated into policy development.</p><p>For example, the Randomised Control Trial research on community based English Language programmes has informed the development of the current English Language programme of support, providing people who don’t speak English with the skills and confidence to improve their integration outcomes.</p><p>Our Integrated Areas evaluation will test the impact of different interventions designed to improve real life social outcomes, including social mixing outcomes across different communities residing in the same place.</p><p>The previous 2015 version of the Indices of Multiple Deprivation fed directly into MHCLG and more widely into other Departments’ policy development, particularly where policies have been focused on working with the most deprived communities across the country.</p><p>More generally, much of our commissioned research aims to understand and address the needs of communities that most need our support and promote growth.
