Profiling London's Rough Sleepers (2009)

A longitudinal analysis of CHAIN data

Broadway launched a groundbreaking study of London’s rough sleepers supported by Communities and Local Government (CLG) in 2009. Providing extensive analysis of the data collected about rough sleeping in London since the late 1990s, this research was essential reading for those working in the field of street homelessness.

The research explored: who sleeps rough and what their backgrounds and experiences are including nationality, ethnicity, age, drug and alcohol use and mental health. It also looked at how long people spend on the streets, how they use hostel accommodation and the effectiveness of routes off the streets.

The report explored various groups of rough sleepers from the majority who spend very little time on the streets to the concerning minority of people who sleep rough over many years.

Please note Broadway merged with fellow homelessness charity St Mungo's on 1 April 2014 to form St Mungo's Broadway. Find out more about the new organisation by visiting its website.
