As part of the #RoomInTheRecovery campaign, FEANTSA is monitoring developments in homelessness policy in Europe, especially those related to protective measures taken during the pandemic or to recovery plans.
Promising Policy Developments
- Italy to invest 150 million € of EU Recovery & Resilience Facility in Housing First Projects, as stated in the Piano Nazionale degli Interventi e dei Servizi Sociali 2021-2023.
Worrying Policy Developments
- In England, fewer than one in four homeless people housed by the government's Everyone In scheme have moved into permanent accommodation, reports BBC.
- The UK government has cut the £20-a-week uplift to Universal Credit, leaving many exposed to the risks of eviction and homelessness, read Crisis' press release here.
