Answered By:

The number of rough sleepers on London's streets typically falls somewhat in the Christmas period and did so more sharply in 2014 than 2013. Rough sleeping services, including those I commission, continued to operate as normal. Crisis runs centres that provide food, advice and some accommodation - for up to 800 people - for homeless people.
