Fact check: has the number of rough sleepers gone down?

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


This article refutes Prime Minister David Cameron's assertion during the lead-up to the 2015 UK general election that the number of rough sleepers has reduced under the Coalition Government. It argues that on the contrary, available evidence indicates that the number of rough sleepers in England has increased year-on-year since 2010 when the Coalition Government came into power.
