As part of Lifeline Project’s ongoing focus on health, inequality and homelessness in Greater Manchester, they have created a report that presents data on recorded levels of homelessness amongst people in substance misuse treatment services.
Their analysis of data from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) found that 15% of people entering drug and/or alcohol treatment in 2015/16 were in housing need in Greater Manchester. The report explores where this population is located throughout the conurbation in order to understand the level of need amongst people who may be otherwise ‘hidden’ from official homeless and rough sleeping statistics.
Permission was given by all 10 local authorities and NDTMS North West to use this data.
The report is attached below and will be available at www.lifeline.org.uk (along all previous reports and infographics)
