FOI QUERIES, Norwich City Council

Dear  Mr Wynter,

Freedom of Information Request 6738746

Further to your request for information I write to advise you that your
final question, regarding numbers of homeless persons within the city
council area, has been referred to the council's Housing department;
however you will need to submit your enquiries regarding residential care
homes to Norfolk County Council as this falls within the county council's
remit rather than the city council.

Please find below a link to Norfolk County Council's FOI web pages:

there is support available within the block either 24 hours a day, or

Those who are unintentionally homeless.

FOI QUERIES, Norwich City Council

Dear Sir

Please find below our response to your Freedom of Information request
regarding homeless numbers.

How many adults are homeless within the Local Authority?

The number of households of single adults that have an active homeless
application to this authority (as per part VII of the Housing Act) and for
whom investigations are currently ongoing is 23.

What percentage of adults are homeless rehoused in supported housing until
they are rehoused in the Local Authority?

Of these, 74% (17) are placed in temporary accommodation with a supported
element while their cases are investigated.  Obviously, not all of these
will ultimately be rehoused in local authority housing as, in line with
the legislation, the council will only rehouse those that it has a duty to
as a result of a successful homelessness application (in accordance with
part VII of the Housing Act). 

Would it be right to say that it is the councilÂ’s preference to place
homeless within the borough?

Yes

Would it be right to say that the existing provisions are adequate for the
needs of the homeless within the borough?

The needs of the homeless and their numbers are subject to change. For the
most part existing provision is adequate.

In respect of the homeless, how many of the placements are within private
provisions?

This changes but is generally a mix of temporary accommodation managed by
supporting agencies and charities and, when necessary, third party
accommodation providers in the private sector. Currently (11.09.17), we
have 17 clients in temporary accommodation managed by supporting agencies
and charities and 24 clients in accommodation sourced through the private
sector. 

In respect of the homeless, how many of the placements are within the
councilÂ’s own provisions?

None

Please note that any questions relating to residential care for the
elderly and adults with disabilities would need to be directed to County
Council.  See their website for details at:

www.norfolk.gov.uk

Unless otherwise indicated our data is being offered under the Open
Government Licence for public sector information.

Please make sure you read this and understand the responsibilities of the
