People seen sleeping rough by outreach workers by borough (2019/20)
More people are recorded sleeping rough in central London than they are in the outer boroughs. By far, Westminster is the borough with the most people recorded sleeping rough with just over 2,750 people known to outreach workers there, more than three times the number in Camden, the next highest borough. The most central area of London - the City - saw slightly over 430 people sleeping rough, but this should be seen in the context of the small size of the City. Newham is the borough with the third highest number of people sleeping rough (724 people seen), a sign of the eastward move of London’s population in general.
