Resources for Housing First Practitioners and other Support Service Providers
Different countries are at different stages of experiencing the effects of COVID-19 and people experiencing homelessness are an especially at-risk group due to the complex health needs and social challenges that they are faced with every day. Sharing of knowledge and expertise from the sector across borders and between policymakers, service providers and support workers is especially crucial to help manage this crisis and ensure continuity of much-needed support services to some of the most vulnerable members of our communities.
Welcome to the Housing First Europe Hub
The Hub is a network of organisations, public authorities and foundations working to scale up Housing First in Europe. The Hub organizes training on Housing First, conducts and publishes research, and produces tools for practitioners and policy makers to understand, explain and deliver Housing First.
The resources on this website are available to everyone. More information about our training, research and other programmes will be made available over the next months. Click on the links to find out more about the Hub Partners, as well as about Housing First in your country or city.
Read the report from the first ever Europe-wide study of Housing First
Compiling data from 19 countries, evidence from the 2019 study shows that the Housing First model is effective, but needs more political support to increase its impact across Europe.
Housing First Europe Hub’s Research Digest
Every four months, the Hub’s Research Work Cluster digests a selection of three to five papers on Housing First for you to showcase new and relevant research on HF in Europe and elsewhere – with a critical eye, of course!
Each edition of the Research Digest is curated by a HF Hub member, therefore presenting personal research interests and views of HF experts across Europe.
