FOI Request - Homelessness
a. In your council, how many individuals have been assessed and are homeless by legal definition in the last three years, broken down by year – presented as 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19.
b. In your council, how many people have been assessed for homelessness but have not been given homelessness status, across the last three years, broken down as 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19.
Please note that the Scottish Government regularly publish homeless statistics which can be accessed on their website here.
However, for both part a & b, the table below shows all homeless assessments by decision. Please note that those marked Homeless Unintentional are entitled to permanent accommodation:
|Ineligible For Assistance||*||6||9|
|Lost Contact Before Decn (post Apr 07)||*||6||7|
|Not Homeless/potentially Hmls||68||65||62|
|Resolved Homelessness Prior To Decision||73||66||72|
|Threatened With Homelessness Intentional||*||*||*|
|Threatened With Homeless Unintentional||39||46||59|
|Withdrew Application Before Decn||56||33||35|
* The numbers are so few that disclosure could identify individuals. This information is therefore exempt under section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, personal information.
