Number of people accepted as homeless

Indicator Overview

Data collected by Herefordshire Council, reported to the Department of Communities and Local Government and published by the Department. There is a narrow definition for this measure which does not reflect the experience of many people in Herefordshire. For example Centrepoint published data on youth homelessness which is largely not picked up in this indicator

However it is a widely used measure and the only regularly collected measure we could find.

If this figure reduces it will indicate that some types of people are less likely to be homeless.

The raw data is available on Herefordshire's Data Hub
