This collection contains statistics on statutory homelessness, rough sleeping and homelessness prevention and relief. As of the release of 30 June 2016, statutory homelessness and prevention and relief statistics have been combined into a single statistical release.
Local authorities compiling this data or other interested parties may wish to see the notes and definitions for homelessness which also includes the latest P1E quarterly form and guidance notes.
Copies of previously published statutory homelessness quarterly statistical releases can be found towards the bottom of this page under the heading Live tables.
Our homelessness statistics are changing. The last statutory homelessness statistics based on the P1E return were published on the 27 June 2018. Following implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017, on 3 April 2018, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) changed the way of collecting data from local authorities on statutory homelessness. Further information is available from the user note below.
