  • Over a quarter (26%) of homeless people are black, which is almost three times larger than the black population (9%) in Redbridge on a whole. The Black group makes up a slightly greater percentage of the homeless numbers than the White population (24%).
  • Black and minority groups are significantly more likely to be living in overcrowded accommodation. Almost a fifth (13%) of black and minority ethnic households are overcrowded, compared to only 4% of white households.
