A note on interpreting the figures

As local authority needs differ, it is appropriate to tailor service provision to the needs specific to each local authority. Therefore, the use and implementation of Housing Options varies greatly between local authorities.

For that reason, it is not appropriate to make direct comparisons between local authority Housing Options figures. Instead, local authority figures should be used to understand the delivery of Housing Options at an individual local authority level only.

Impact of coronavirus

Given the figures in this publication report data up until 31st March 2020, this only crosses over with around a week of coronavirus restrictions and changes in practices being in place. Therefore, the impact of coronavirus on Housing Options data will be extremely minimal.
