    Homelessness among English households has risen 54 per cent since 2010, according to government figures.A report, released by the Department for Communities and Local Government, reveals there were 57,750 acceptances in financial year 2015-16 – a rise from 54,430 (6 per cent) from 2014-15.This represents the sixth consecutive annual rise, with households becoming homeless in London increasing to 17,530 (9 per cent) in the last year alone and 58,000 households across the whole of England.


    Temporary accommodation also came under further strain, with the number of households forced into uncertain living conditions rising to 71,540, or a 49 per cent increase since 2010. At the same time, the number of preventative measures taken by local authorities dropped by 6,900 in the last year.

    We also see changes in methodology and apparently a minimal per capita change (although I'm not sure what population they're measuring given it doesn't exactly add up)
