Advocacy

The Hub and its partners will develop tools, which will be freely available, to anyone trying to make the case for Housing First.

One of our first projects is a feasibility study on how a major city can scale up Housing First as it’s first approach to tackling homelessness. Initial findings from the study will be available in May 2017. A roadmap for other cities will be developed over the summer and published in Autumn 2017.


In cooperation with Hub partner Crisis, and support from other Hub partners (Homeless Link (UK), Turning Point Scotland, Focus Ireland, Husbanken, etc.), the Hub has conducted a feasibility study on how to move beyond the pilot project phase and make Housing First the mainstream response to homelessness in Liverpool.

The preliminary findings of this study were presented at the FEANTSA policy conference in Gdansk, Poland on 19 May 2017. The full report was published in Liverpool in July 2017.

The Hub will produce a roadmap and other materials for cities to adapt this study and its findings to their own contexts. These materials will be published in late 2017. Please contact Samara.Jones@feantsa.org if you have any questions.
