Housing First Europe : Final Report

The Housing First Europe (HFE) project was a social experimentation project, funded by the European Commission, DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, under the PROGRESS programme from August 2011 to July 2013. HFE's aims included the evaluation of, and mutual learning between, local projects in ten European cities which provide homeless people with complex needs with immediate access to long-term, self-contained housing and intensive support. HFE involved five test sites where the approach was evaluated (Amsterdam, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow and Lisbon), and facilitated the exchange of information and experiences with five additional peer sites (Dublin, Gent, Gothenburg, Helsinki and Vienna) where further Housing First projects were planned or elements of the approach were being implemented. Five project meetings, including a final public conference, were used for the exchange of information and experiences.
