Ending homelessness: A handbook for policy makers

Ending homelessness: A handbook for policy makers

This handbook is aimed at policy makers and others seeking to tackle homelessness in Europe. It sets out the need for ambitious strategies which aim to end homelessness. It details the priorities and essential components that such strategies should contain. More specifically, it presents a set of five goals that strategies to end homelessness must work towards achieving, and gives examples of approaches that have been used to make progress towards them:

  1. No one sleeping rough
  2. No one living in transitional accommodation longer than is
  3. No one living in emergency accommodation for longer than is an ‘emergency’ required for successful move-on
  4. No one leaving an institution without housing options
  5. No young people becoming homeless as a result of the transition to independent living
