A total of 86% rough sleepers are men, according to in a study by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Social Affairs.

There are around 380,000 people who are known as the ‘hidden homeless’.  This is people who are facing risk of eviction, sofa-surfing at friends and family, or living in unsatisfactory conditions. The majority of the ‘hidden homeless’ are men.

The most common reasons for homelessness among men are relationship breakdowns, substance misuse, and leaving an institution (prison, care, hospital etc.).

Figures compiled earlier this year found that between 2013 and 2017 the amount of homeless people who’ve died on the streets or in temporary accommodation has doubled and around 90% of those deaths were men.
