Yet another indicator:
‘It’s a crisis’ says Mission
The homeless population of central Auckland is two-and-a-half times higher than it was three years ago, a new report says.
The Auckland City Street Count of Central Auckland has found 177 people were sleeping rough within 3km of the Sky Tower on a single night this year.
That’s the most recorded since the count began in 2004, and is significantly higher than the 68 people counted in the same area in 2013.
At least 51 people weren’t included in the count, because they had found temporary accommodation or were in hospital that night. …
That’s quite a legacy John Key.
