Four people are sleeping rough in Basingstoke and Deane according to the Basingstoke and Deane Social Inclusion Partnership





The Basingstoke and Deane Social Inclusion Partnership has pledged to continue its work after it recorded only four people sleeping rough in the borough.

Each year the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities asks every local authority to record the number of people sleeping rough in its area in November.

In Basingstoke and Deane the number of people sleeping on the streets has fallen from 26 in 2016 to four on the night of the count in November last year.

The 2023 figure was submitted by members of the Basingstoke and Deane Social Inclusion Partnership, which is a coalition of statutory services, commissioned housing providers, voluntary and faith-based groups and those with lived experience of rough sleeping.

Residents who spot someone sleeping rough in the borough have been asked by the partnership to report this at https://thestreetlink.org.uk/ to ensure that the individual gets the help they need.
