The Hub will set up an educational programme for Housing First trainers. The goal will be to create a pool of trainers who are experienced and knowledgeable about Housing First, and who will be able to conduct a variety of training modules on aspects of Housing First.
The first course for trainers will be held in Autumn 2017. Please contact us for more information.
Intro to the Housing First Europe Guide
The Guide is the first European resource of its kind. As Housing First has taken off in Europe, a growing demand has emerged for knowledge and expertise. Until now, much of the available material has come from North America. There was a need for practical guidance bringing together existing knowledge and experience on doing Housing First in European contexts. That’s why we created this Guide. It complements similar manuals developed in the US (Tsemberis 2010) and Canada (Canadian Housing First Toolkit).
Who is the Guide for?
The Guide is for people who want to know more about what Housing First means and how it works in Europe. It aims to support practitioners and policy makers who are implementing, or interested in developing, Housing First. Users of the Guide will include managers and frontline staff of homeless services; people working in related sectors such as health and housing; national and local policy-makers; researchers; people with experience of homelessness and other stakeholders.
