In addition we are also requesting totals of the below questions broken down by both gender (male, female, and other/not known) and age group (16-17 year olds and 18-24 year olds).
Within your authority in 2021-2022, how many 16-24 year olds:
1. Presented themselves as homeless, or at risk of homelessness, as a main applicant?
This does not include general housing advice. By presenting we mean all who presented themselves as homeless even if they were not subsequently assessed, for example:
a. Presented before 56 days of becoming as homeless, or at risk of homelessness.
b. Believed they were homeless but did not meet requirements.
Presented but were not eligible for homelessness assistance.
2. Were included as part of any household presenting as homeless or at risk of homelessness, including as main applicant?
This would include either or both members of a couple aged 16-24, or any children or other adults aged 16-24 included as part of a family. If it is only possible to provide age data for the main applicant, please leave this question blank.
3. Were assessed for a Prevention and/or Relief duty under part 7 of the Housing Act?
While this assessment is a new duty brought in by the HRA, it is a duty under part 7 of the Housing Act as amended by the HRA.
4. Received an initial decision of being owed:
a. Prevention duty under HRA.
b. Relief duty under HRA.
5. Prevention duty ended:
a. With accommodation secured.
b. Leading to relief duty
c. Any other reason.
6. Relief ended:
a. With accommodation secured.
b. For any other reason (not including those who progress to an assessment under the Housing Act 1996).
7. Were assessed for a statutory main housing duty under part 7 of the Housing Act.
By this we mean- following unsuccessful prevention and/or relief outcomes, how many young people underwent a final assessment under part 7 of the Housing Act in order to assess their eligibility for a statutory main housing duty?
8. Were accepted as statutorily homeless and owed a statutory main housing duty under part 6 of the Housing Act 1996.
After undergoing a final assessment, how many young people were accepted as statutorily homeless and offered a statutory main housing duty?
Please note that the P1E returns are not suitable for this request as they do not provide data broken down by age.
