Homelessness figures in JerseyCI

As reported in The Jersey Evening Post by James Jeune on Monday 13th March.

The ‘true scale’ of homelessness in Jersey is due to be revealed by new statistics at the start of next month, according to the Housing Minister.

Deputy David Warr said an awareness campaign was being launched to promote the support and guidance services available to those who are – or are at risk of becoming – homeless.

Posters will be put up in locations including GP surgeries and the headquarters of Citizens Advice Jersey and the Salvation Army, drawing attention to support mechanisms such as the Government’s Advice Service.

Deputy Warr added that the first homelessness statistics to be published by the government since his new definition for homelessness was introduced were set to be released in the first week of April.
