    A lot of talk locally about Social Mobility and Council Homes, yet homelessness has risen 28% from the previous quarter in Ipswich and rough sleeping has almost quadrupled in 4 years!

    Ipswich has gone from 13 known rough sleepers in 2010 following the recession and start of austerity, a few years in decline, up to 16 known rough sleepers in 2015 (I assume its council budget cut backs resulting in homeless people not having accommodation) up to 27 rough sleepers in 2016.

    Visible numbers have been unprecedented in 2017 around the time of the election etc. and since with two homeless camps setup - one at the Ipswich Waterfront and Old Cattle Market bus station. We await these figures when they become available.
