Total net spending on housing homeless applicants in temporary accommodation
Dear Camden Borough Council,
I write to make a request for information relating to the total NET (rather than gross) spending on the provision of temporary accommodation for those registering as homeless made by this council between the years 2017 and 2022
As part of this request I would like the information to be broken down into the following:
(i) The number of people placed into temporary accommodation after making a homeless application, broken down into year-by-year;
(ii) The average length of stay in temporary accommodation after making a homeless application;
(iii) The total cost of temporary accommodation to the council, broken down into costs per night, per month and per year.
