FOI-001319 - Philippa Goymer Homeless rehousing outside of the Borough
Thank you for your freedom of Information request which asked:
How many homeless families, single men and single women under the responsibility of your borough have had to be housed in another borough elsewhere in England in the following years:
2018 as far as you can
And please provide which local authority they are located.
Unfortunately our systems only record a snapshot of the number of households placed out of the borough (with location) at a particular point in time, and not a cumulative figure for a whole year.
Our rent account system only identifies the location of the current temporary accommodation address, and therefore will not identify homeless households who were housed out of the borough for a period but have since moved back into Hackney. To identify these households manually given the numbers involved would take more time than is reasonable and permitted under the act.
What we are able to provide is a monthly snapshot confirming the total number of households placed outside of Hackney in any given month since April 2013, and the location of these households. These records only go back to the start of the 13/14 financial year – which is when we started recording this information. This is attached.
If you are dissatisfied with this response and wish to appeal, please respond to this email to request an Internal Review.
If you are still not satisfied following the Internal Review, you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner.
