there is support available within the block either 24 hours a day, or
during the day (but not overnight)

We would require the most up to date statistics of homelessness in your area that fits your criteria for those to be temporarily rehoused for example:
having no accommodation at all
having accommodation that is not reasonable to live in, even in the short-term (eg because of violence or health reasons)
Those who are unintentionally homeless.

Yours faithfully,
