An analysis of the numbers gathered by our South Wales-based Rough Sleepers Intervention Teams between November 2017 and October 2018, which shows increasing numbers of people living street based lifestyles in Cardiff, Newport, Bridgend and Swansea over the year.
People living a ‘Street Based Lifestyle’ (SBL) are people who spend most of their time on the streets. This includes those sleeping rough, individuals who are spending time in emergency or temporary accommodation, or are otherwise unsuitably housed.
This South Wales Street Based Lifestyle Monitor, covering 2017-18, presents an up-to-date and in-depth
picture of people living a street based lifestyle in various parts of South Wales.
This Monitor is an extension of the monthly and quarterly RSIT reports published on The Wallich’s Rough Sleeping Figures page.
The more we understand street based living in Wales, and the more data we can collect about it, the more informed our proposed solutions will be.
