Number of rough sleepers increases

A report from the DCLG has found the number of people sleeping on the streets has risen by 14% over the past year. The report states that 2,755 people have been reported by local councils across the country as sleeping rough on any one night in 2014. A separate report released by the Albert Kennedy Trust revealed a disproportionately high number of young people on the streets identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, with 77% believing their sexuality or gender identity was a causal factor in rejection from home.
