Rough Sleeping in London

Between July and September, 4,068 people were found to be sleeping on the streets of London by outreach teams, 12% up on the same period last year. 2,086, more than half of them, sleeping rough for the first time.

London Councils report that more than 1 in 7 of those renting in the city are reliant on housing allowance to meet their costs. Analysis conducted on their behalf by Alma Economics suggests that "almost 60,000 London renters could be pushed into homelessness by 2030. This would equate to an additional 16,500 to 22,000 households, if local housing allowance is not raised." The 22,000 households figure equates to 58,740 people, including 28,000 children.
