I am writing to request statistics for the number of single households* who have approached your local authority since the introduction of the Homelessness Reduction Act and have:
1. Presented at your Local Authority whose reason for loss of last settled home was:
a. Violent relationship breakdown with partner or associated persons
b. Other violence or harassment
2. Number of single households* who presented at your Local Authority whose supports needs were:
a. At risk of/has experienced sexual abuse/exploitation
b. At risk of/has experienced domestic abuse
3. The number of these single households* cases from 1 and 2 whom went through both prevention and relief duty stages and then had a Main duty decision made and were found to be Homeless but Non-priority.
(*single households would include those applicants who could have non-dependent children still living at home)
Please provide figures broken down for the 3 quarters since the introduction of the Homelessness Reduction Act i.e. Quarter 1 April-June 2018; Quarter 2 July-Sept 2018 and Quarter 3 Oct-Sept 2018. Please complete and submit data in the attached Excel template.
I am aware that this data is collected by Local Authorities but is not actually in the public domain via the H-CLIC statistics currently. Please do give me a call to discuss this further if you would like.
