Detail

This guidance is intended to help local authorities, in partnership with other local agencies, to evaluate the extent of rough sleeping in their area by carrying out a count of people sleeping rough or by estimating the number of rough sleepers on a typical night in their locality.

The Department for Communities and Local Government will publish an annual figure based on this information.

The form that local authorities should use to complete the count/estimate is also provided.
