To ask the Scottish Government how many children in Glasgow have lived in temporary accommodation in each year since 2007.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 14 September 2017
Information on the number of homeless adults and children who have lived in temporary accommodation throughout the course of each year is not currently available.
The Scottish Government collects temporary accommodation information from local authorities in the HL2 form which provides information, on a snapshot basis, on the number of households in temporary accommodation at the end of each quarter. Information is collected on the number of dependent children living within these households. The following table provides a count of children in Temporary Accommodation in the Glasgow local authority area as at the 31st March each year since 2007.
