Information on the number of households who local authorities accepted a duty to accommodate under the homelessness legislation is reported to Government quarterly by boroughs. Data is available, for each local authority in England, in section E3 of the table 'Detailed local authority homeless figures'.

These tables can be accessed at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-homelessness. The data that identifies the number of households made homeless by domestic abuse does not differentiate different household types.
