To whom this may concern,

I am seeking information from your local authority under the Freedom of Information Act (2000), regarding the topic of homelessness in your area. My questions are as follows:

• What was the number of people found to be rough sleeping in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 – 2018?
• What was the number of people found to be homeless in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 to 2018?
• How much was spent by the council on schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?
• How much was spent by the council on ‘Housing First’ style schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?
• How much was spent by the council from Government grants on ‘Housing First’ style schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010-2018?

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via email and I will be pleased to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request.

Thank you very much for your help regarding this topic, I look forward to you reply in the near future.

Yours faithfully,

Emily Thomas

Dear Emily Thomas

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Ref: 1346/1920

Thank you for your correspondence received on 20 September 2019. In
response to your request I can now provide the following information. 

Q1. What was the number of people found to be rough sleeping in the area
administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 – 2018?

A1. This information is held in the public domain and can be accessed at
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/collection...

 

Q2. What was the number of people found to be homeless in the area
administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 to 2018?

A2. This information is held in the public domain and can be accessed at
[2]https://www.gov.uk/government/collection...

Prior to 2018 the information the Local Authority reported into the
Government was via P1E reporting which is no longer available and for
Stockton to gain this information via its software system would take
longer than 18 hours . 

 

Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act makes provision for public
authorities to refuse requests for information where the cost of dealing
with them would exceed the appropriate limit, which for local government
is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending
18 hours in determining whether the department holds the information and
then locating, retrieving and extracting the information. This aspect of
your request is therefore exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (exceeds appropriate limit on resources).

 

Q3. How much was spent by the council on schemes aimed at tackling
homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?

A3. The Homelessness and Housing Solutions core budget for 2019/20 was
£594k. Prior to this the team was part of a wider Housing Team budget and
to extract these figures would take over 18 hours.

your request is therefore exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (exceeds appropriate limit on resources).

 

Q4. How much was spent by the council on ‘Housing First’ style schemes
aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?

A4. Nil, the Council does not have a Housing First style scheme

 

Q5. How much was spent by the council from Government grants on ‘Housing
First’ style schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years
between 2010-2018?

£594k. Prior to this the team was part of a wider Housing Team budget and

If you have any queries or concerns please contact me in the first
instance.

 

However, if you are unhappy with the way your request for information has
been handled, you can submit a complaint to

the handling of your request or complaint, you have a right to appeal to
