Answer for Roma rough-sleepers (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The table below shows the number of rough sleepers contacted by outreach teams during 2012/13 and 2013/14 who came from European countries other than the UK and Ireland and described their ethnic identify as Gypsy/Romany/Irish Traveller (note that this is a broader category than Roma). This data is taken from the Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN) database that is commissioned by the Mayor and used by services that work with rough sleepers.
