3 “As welfare reform takes effect, low-income tenants and social landlords – two of the groups most directly affected – become a barometer of its impact. The ripple effect in communities is huge” (JRF 2014)

4 Facts & Figures Analysis of data sets (P1E returns) for the year shows single homelessness steadily increasing as a % of total homelessness – rising from 47% in quarter 1 through to almost 53% in q3. Interestingly the national data set shows a similar increase but a much lower proportion – starting from 19% through to 22%.
