Information about the main reason for loss of last settled home is collected in respect of those households who were accepted as eligible for assistance, unintentionally homeless and in priority need, and therefore owed a main homelessness duty. It does not cover reason for loss for those applicant households who were not accepted.
In 2002 the priority need categories were extended to include those vulnerable as a result of having spent time in custody or on remand, and since Quarter 2 2005 we have separately identified those whose main reason for loss of last settled home was leaving prison or remand.
In 2005-06, 860 out of the total of 93,980 households who were accepted as owed a main homelessness duty had the main reason for loss of last settled home as leaving prison or remand.
