Data on the number of rough sleepers aged 25 or younger are not collected centrally by the department. However, the London Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN) annual report for 2010-11 highlights that the proportion of young people seen rough sleeping remained low-8% were under 25. Only four people under 18 were contacted.

The regional rough sleeping figures for England can be found on the department's website at http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/statistics/xls/20936651.xls.
