A new strategy to tackle rough sleeping in Boston is showing progress after just a few months, a charity says.
Homeless Centrepoint Outreach say a new government-funded plan to tackle the issue began this winter.
The new homelessness plan provides rough sleepers help with short-term accommodation, mental health problems and addiction issues.
BBC Figures show at least 240 were in Lincolnshire, but those figures don't include the Boston or South Holland areas.
Liz Hopkins, from Centrepoint in Boston, says their data showed 19 rough sleepers in the town last year.
That's down from the year before when the figure was 22. I would hope the figure might continue to come down. The Rough Sleeper Project is aiming at reducing the number much further...So far, initial signs are encouraging."
