Single and homeless
Single homelessness refers to single adults without dependent children who have no home available to live in. This includes people who:
- are sleeping rough
- are in hostels and supported accommodation
- have been asked to leave by friends and family
- are sofa surfers
We’re working with our partners to end rough sleeping. We’ve adopted the No Second Night Out standard to ensure rough sleepers are helped to move from the streets into settled housing.
