The session was co-organized by the Housing Solutions Platform led by Housing Europe, Feantsa & Fondation Abbe Pierre (both Hub partners), and brought together key actors to explore the relationship between housing policy strategy and the reality of social work in bringing housing to those who need it most. In other words: how to successfully implement Housing First programmes on the ground.
This session was part of the International Social Housing Festival 2022, organized by The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) – a partner of the Housing First Europe Hub, the City of Helsinki and Housing Europe. The 2022 edition of International Social Housing Festival (ISHF) explored housing as the foundation of good life. The festival highlighted the role of social, public and co-operative housing in achieving socially and ecologically sustainable living in our cities now and in the future.
