Abstract
Recent government policies to tackle single homelessness have been expressly concerned to reduce the incidence of rough sleeping, particularly in central London. This paper sets the issue of street homelessness in its policy and legislative context; examines available evidence of the rise in street homelessness in Britain; and presents a critical overview of the Single Homelessness Initiative.
