The Homelessness Monitor: England 2016

This annual state-of-the nation report funded by Crisis and JRF draws on a survey of councils, statistical analysis and in-depth interviews to analyse the impact of economic and policy developments on homelessness.

The homelessness monitor: England 2016 report shows that:

  • Councils across England are struggling to cope with numbers of single homeless people, with the majority backing a change in the law to expand homelessness prevention;
  • Nine out of ten English councils often (54%) or sometimes (34%) find it difficult to help single homeless people aged 25-34; and
  • 87% of English councils find it difficult to help people aged 18-24.
