“Government ‘erased’ male rough sleepers from statistics, campaigners claim”

“The Men and Boys Coalition (MBC), a network of charities, academics and professionals committed to highlighting and taking action on gender-specific issues that affect men and boys, accused the department of communities and local government of ‘erasing’ male rough sleepers in this report.

They argued 88% of rough sleepers were male and of the 40% of the local authorities in which rough sleepers were recorded, 100% of those sleeping rough were men.

In each of these local authorities gender was only recorded for the ‘zero’ number of rough sleepers who were female,’ the MBC said.”
