How many people sleep rough in England?
It can be difficult to work out the number of people sleeping rough for a number of reasons. People bed down at different times, move about, and can be hidden away in derelict buildings. However, each year every local authority in England does estimate or count the number of people sleeping rough in their area.
This information is then submitted to the Department for Communities and Local Government and provides an estimate of the number of individuals sleeping out on any one night in England.
