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 Ms Thomas

I refer to your email received on 20 September 2019 requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act. As you may be aware Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council were abolished on 1 April 2019 and replaced with West Suffolk Council. Prior to 1 April 2019 Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council were working together under the banner West Suffolk to provide a shared service across the boundaries of both authorities. This response is sent on behalf of the West Suffolk Council and its predecessors.

Questions:

1.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?

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