How much does homelessness cost you?

Financial costs:

    • the average cost of an A&E visit is £147; 4 out of 10 experiencing homelessness have used A&E in last six month 

    • £1,668 is the average cost per arrest; 7 out of 10 homeless ex-offenders are reconvicted within one year

    • £26, 000 is the estimated average cost of a homeless person each year to public purse

    • £1 billion is the estimated annual cost of homelessness.

Social costs:

  • Community safety – homelessness is associated with increased risk of substance abuse, mental health issues, violence and subsistence crime

  • Social cohesion – helping the most vulnerable will encourage Brent to become a more connected and vibrant place, as more people will be contributing positively.

     

     

    Contributing to our night shelter will save many of the costs that homelessness brings to taxpayer’s pockets, as well as to community safety and well-being.
