Update on rough sleepers from 8th October
As of the 8th October, the council has resettled 101 individual rough sleepers into permanent social, private, supported or National Asylum Support Service Accommodation. There are 71 individuals still in accommodation arranged by Lewisham, including some rough sleepers accommodated since ‘Everyone In’ ended.
Lewisham Council has prevented 766 homeless cases since the start of the pandemic. Our priority remains to tackle the housing crisis and support those who are or are at risk of becoming homeless.
