Dear Movya,

 

Further to your enquiry under the above Act, the City Council’s response
is as follows:

 

1. provide me with number of people registered homeless with your council?

There are 1749 households currently in Temporary Accommodation who have
been accepted as homeless or who are in the process of applying.

 

2. provide me with number of hostels available within your council?

 

Thank you for clarifying that you are referring here to accommodation used
to house individuals on a temporary basis under homelessness legislation. 
I can confirm that there are currently 15 institutions in Westminster
providing a total of 233 units of B&B hostel/hotel accommodation. 
Unfortunately I do not hold information on how many of these house single
person households.  Hopefully the information provided is sufficient but,
if not, please let me know.

 

3. provide me with number of in-house hostels currently using agency care
/ support workers and their locations?

The City Council does not manage any hostels.

   

4. advise which of Q3 are expected to close in 2012?

Not applicable.

 

I hope that this information is helpful and if you have any future
information requirements, let me know.

 

Yours sincerely,
