People sleeping rough by London boroughs

People seen sleeping rough by outreach workers by borough (2022/23)

Westminster is the borough with the most people recorded sleeping rough by far, with 2,050 people known to outreach workers there, nearly three times the number in Camden, the next highest borough. Lambeth is the borough with the third highest number of people sleeping rough (623 people seen), and Ealing next at 563 - a sign of the spreading of housing pressures to outer boroughs.

Wandsworth is the only borough that saw a reduction in people seen sleeping rough since 2021/22 - from 264 to 173 in 2022/2023.
