Homeless In Brighton: Life expectancy significantly lower for rough sleepers
The average life expectancy for rough sleepers is dramatically lower than for people who are not homeless.
The average life expectancy in the UK is 78.8 for men and 82.8 for women. For people living on the streets it is just 47 for men and 43 for women.
Homeless charity Crisis say rough sleepers are also 35 times more likely to kill themselves than the general population.
The Brighton & Hove Homeless Health Needs Audit in 2014 found that 84 percent of homeless people reported at least one physical health issue. 85 percent reported at least one mental health issue and 73 percent reported this mental health issue had been ongoing for 12 months or more.
