Collection

Homelessness statistics

This collection brings together all documents relating to homelessness and rough sleeping statistics.

This collection contains statistics on statutory homelessness, rough sleeping and homelessness. As of the statistical release for Quarter 2 2018 (April - June) statutory homelessness statistics include prevention and relief duties carried out under the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.

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. Notes and definitions for the new H-CLIC collection can be found on the MHCLG Homelessness Statistics User Forum.

Previously published statutory homelessness statistical tables can be found towards the bottom of this page under the heading Discontinued tables.

Our homelessness statistics have changed. The last statutory homelessness statistics based on the P1E return were published for Quarter 1 2018 (January - March). Following implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 on 3 April 2018 MHCLG changed the way of collecting data from local authorities on statutory homelessness. Further information is available from the user note below.
