- Whilst the number of single person households accepted as homeless fell by 9 per cent during 2013-14, an increasing percentage of households accepted as homeless are single person households, accounting for 55 per cent of all acceptances during 2013-14.
Households in Temporary Accommodation
- The number of households placed in temporary accommodation also decreased at the end of 2012-13 and 2013-14 following increases in the previous two years. At the end of March 2014 there were 2,295 households in temporary accommodation which is the lowest number recorded at the end of any quarter since the end of December 2003.
- Whilst the number of households in Bed &Breakfast accommodation at the end of the quarter had been increasing in recent years, there were 185 households in B&B at the end of March 2014 a fall of 38 per cent compared with the end of March 2013. The number of families with children in bed and breakfast accommodation also fell by more than a half, with 10 families with children in this form of accommodation at the end of March 2014.
Following a consultation on a range of proposals relating to official statistics, statutory homelessness information will continue to be collected and published, via StatsWales, on a quarterly basis however publication of the full quarterly statistical report will be replaced with a twice yearly statistical report.
This report is therefore the last in the series of quarterly homelessness reports. We will continue to update quarterly data via StatsWales, pre-announce the publication of quarterly data on our release calendar and update certain headline statistics on this page.
Data will be added to the StatsWales website shortly.
