Dear Emily Thomas,
 
Thank you for your recent request for information relating to homelessness
temporary accommodation which we received on 20/09/19.
 
Please find below, Sheffield City Council’s response to your request:
 
•         What was the number of people in temporary accommodation
organised by the council in each of the years from 2010-2018?
 
Number of placements into TA by year:
 

2015 647
2016 475
2017 469
2018 390
2019 394

 
Our system only holds records back to 2015. One household may have more
than one TA placement if they have multiple presentations to our services.
Since the introduction of the Homeless Reduction Act in 2018 we have made
fewer TA placements as households are, on average, staying for longer when
placed.
 
•         How many of those in temporary accommodation were children in
each of the years from 2010 to 2018?
•         How many of those in temporary accommodation were children in
each of the years from 2010-2018?
•         What was the average length of time a family spent in temporary
accommodation in each of the years from 2010-2018?
•         How many people were placed in B&B accommodation in each of the
years from 2010-2018?
•         How many people were given temporary accommodation outside of
the council area in each of the years from 2010-2018?
•         How many children were given temporary accommodation outside the
council area in each of the years from 2010-2018?
 
This information is available in the nationally published statistics,
which can be accessed at the following link:
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/statistica....
As such, this information is exempt from disclosure under section 21 of
the Freedom of Information Act 2000. We don’t offer accommodation out of
our local authority area.
 
•         What is the average cost per night paid by the council for
temporary accommodation in each of the years from 2010-2018?
 
We do not record average costs paid per night.
 
If you have any queries about this response, please do not hesitate to
contact us.
