Freedom of Information Request

Received: 17 June 2019

To whoever it concerns,

Please note: I do not want to put you to the trouble that a request under FOIA entails. This is NOT a FOIA request, but just a regular enquiry in the hope that you can help.
I am the Vice President of the Government Blockchain Association and I run a Social Enterprise that is tackling poverty with a Tech solution to break the Poverty Premium, and I am hoping that you can help me with any information about how the Council supports its poorest residents. More information about what we are doing can be found at
We plan to use this information to shape a solution that will help both the Council & it's vulnerable constituents.
Any information that you can send would be very much appreciated, but the specific questions we have at the moment are:
* Do you have a 'Homelessness prevention department' or similar? If so, are you able to give me any stats about its work ' number of people helped, budget, current/anticipated challenges, ambition etc.?
* Do you run or link with Housing Associations? If so, any details will help us greatly, but particularly: Numbers helped, rent default levels, financially based evictions, supply vs demand, current/anticipated challenges, ambition etc.
* Housing benefit numbers
I sincerely hope that you can help and look forward to hearing from you.
I would also be delighted if you could pass my contact details on to anyone who has an interest in breaking the Poverty Premium in your area.
