For the past 13 years, Homeless Link has produced an annual review of the available support for people experiencing ‘single homelessness’ in England. These individuals are less likely than families to be to be entitled to housing by their local authority, and therefore, often must rely on homelessness charities for accommodation, advice and other forms of support. Our study provides vital evidence of the support provided by these services and is the only available data source of its kind for the homelessness sector in England.
