Oliver Murphy made this Freedom of Information request to Staffordshire County Council as part of a batch sent to 312 authorities Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Staffordshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear FOI Team,

I write to request information on the number of households claiming Universal Credit and/or housing benefit who presented to you as homeless between May 2022 and June 2023.

As part of this request, I would like this information to be broken down into the following:

(i) The total number of households claiming Universal Credit presenting as homeless since May 2022, broken down into leasehold property, private rented and social housing;

(i) The total number of households claiming housing benefit – part of the legacy welfare system – presenting as homeless since May 2022, broken down into leasehold property, private rented and social housing (if relevant).

If the cost of breaking down property types exceeds the figure set out in Section 12 of the FOI Act, then please provide a total amount of households presenting while claiming Universal Credit.

If possible, please present the information in Excel format.

Yours faithfully,

Oliver Murphy
