Housing Options and homelessness preventions and discharge (or relocation)
Request

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from your housing options/solutions (homelessness) service (whether in-house or contracted out to a housing organisation).

Please could you provide me with information on the following questions, for the years 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 (to date):

    1. The number of households living in your authority that were recorded as homelessness prevented or relieved by relocating to alternative accommodation in County Durham
    2. Of those, the number of households you assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
    3. If a letting agent (rather than an individual private landlord or social housing) was involved, please state the name(s) of the letting agent(s) used, and the number of moves with each letting agent
    4. The number of households the letting agent assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
    1. The number of households living in your authority where your main homelessness duty was discharged (following a homelessness decision) by relocating to alternative accommodation in County Durham
    2. Of those, the number of households you assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
    3. If a letting agent (rather than an individual private landlord or social housing) please state the name(s) of the letting agent used, and the number of moves with each letting agent
    4. The number of households the letting agent assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
    1. The number of households living in your authority where you assisted them, through advice and signposting and/or partnership working, to relocate to alternative accommodation in County Durham. This will be outside of homelessness legislation but may involve an advertised relocation scheme from your area, by a landlord based in your area.
    2. Of those, the number of households you assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
    3. If a letting agent (rather than an individual private landlord or social housing) please state the name(s) of the letting agent used, and the number of moves with each letting agent
    4. The number of households the letting agent assisted with financial payment (whether travel, admin fees, white goods, furniture etc)
