To catalyse a change to a housing-led model in Central and Eastern Europe, our member, World Habitat had commissioned an independent feasibility study to explore the barriers, challenges, and opportunities of implementing a housing-led approach in this region. The results are out.
"Homelessness solutions in Central and Eastern Europe are based on emergency and temporary services, but evidence shows that these types of services are expensive, short-term, and do not end homelessness. In contrast, evidence from small housing-led programmes in the region shows that these approaches are effective at solving homelessness, by quickly providing safe and stable homes to anyone experiencing or at risk of homelessness," our member, World Habitat sums up after the results of a feasibility study to explore the barriers, challenges, and opportunities of implementing a housing-led approach in this region.
A series of online roundtables in each of the four focus countries – Croatia, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia - will explore and discuss the key challenges, opportunities, and recommendations arising from the study ‘Ending Homelessness in Central and Eastern Europe: Making the Shift to a Housing-led System’.
