Nationally, there was a 2% increase in
the estimated number of OCUs, but
this change was not statistically
significant.The number of OCUs in
the East of England increased by 18%,
from 21,952 in 2011/12 to 25,910 in
2014/15, and this increase of 3,958
was statistically significant (95% CI:
270 to 7,606). There was an increase in
the point estimate in the North West
of 2,477 – an increase of 5% - but this
was not statistically significant.All
other regions saw increases in the
point estimate apart from a small fall
in the South East and a larger (but still
not statistically significant) fall in
London.

“The scale of core homelessness
has increased significantly across
Great Britain (33% between 2011
and 2016).”
“At any one point in time, core
homelessness in 2016 stood at
around 160,0002 households in
Great Britain (143,000 in
England, 5,100 inWales, 11,800
in Scotland).”
“We estimate that core
homelessness contains 57,000
‘family’ households (couples or
lone parents) containing 82,000
adults and 50,000 children, so
that the core homeless
‘population’ is 236,000.”

“A sub-regional housing market model has been
adapted to forecast future levels of homelessness
which has modelled 15 additional variables.*The
model depends on many assumptions but for the
purpose of this analysis it has been fixed on a
relatively neutral/ benign scenario for the economy
and labour market, and current policy settings
including planned welfare reforms.”
*The 15 variables used are rough sleeping, hostel
residents, unsuitable temporary accommodation,
sofa surfers, total core homelessness, homeless
acceptances, total homeless applications, total in
temporary accommodation, people asked to leave
household, evictions, wider homelessness, relative
low income poverty after housing costs, crime
rates, welfare reform cuts impact (from Beatty &
Fothergill), households in financial difficulty.

Which services or organisations provide take-home naloxone? Nine in ten respondent local authorities (90
per cent) currently made available take-
home naloxone. Six of the fourteen
respondents which did not currently make
naloxone available subsequently
commented that they were either
considering, planning or about to make it
available.
“All service users accessing our local drug
treatment services are offered take home
Naloxone -We have piloted the distribution
of take home naloxone in 3 community
pharmacies providing high level of needle
exchange and are looking to expand this
provision across all needle exchange
pharmacies over the coming year subject
to ratification” (West Midlands).
“Naloxone saves lives and is a very
important tool in tackling DRDs in our
area” (South East).

Hepatitis C remains the commonest infection among this group and overall prevalence is currently stable…Whilst the vast majority of those with HIV were aware of their status, half of PWID with antibodies to hepatitis C remain unaware of their infection, even though four-fifths reported having been tested for hepatitis C infection. After increasing during the previous decade, the uptake of testing for hepatitis C infection has changed little over the last few years. Services should aim to have testing for blood-borne viruses available for patients at first assessment. Repeat testing of people who inject drugs is recommended, and when risk is assessed as high, testing may be carried out up to once or twice a year.” Source: People who inject drugs: HIV and viral hepatitis monitoring (PHE 2017)
