Number of homeless people in Canterbury

Liam Rice made this Freedom of Information request to Canterbury City Council

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.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Canterbury City Council,
I am seeking information from your local authority under the Freedom of Information Act (2000), regarding the topic of homelessness in your area. My questions are as follows:

- What was the number of people confirmed to be rough sleeping in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2014 – 2020?

- What was the age, sex and nationality of those people registered as rough sleeping?

-What was the number of people confirmed to be homeless in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 to 2020?

- How much was spent by the council on schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2020?

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.

Thank you very much for your help regarding this topic, I look forward to you reply in the near future.

Yours faithfully,

Liam Rice
