General description
This information shows the number of rough sleepers in local authority areas. The data is collected to gain a better understanding of the scale and trends in rough sleeping over time to inform local and national policy.

The total counts of rough sleepers are single night snapshots. The estimated count is based on data collected over a two week period with assistance from the voluntary sector, faith groups, local businesses/residents, health and substance misuse agencies, and the police.


Data collection and calculation
The information presented here is collected via annual returns from Local Authorities.

2017-18 data is not directly comparable with 2016-17 data and similarly 2016-17 data is not directly comparable with 2015-16 data due to timing differences.
