This week the European Commission’s Directorate-General of Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion published the Annual Implementation reports for the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative.

The figures in the report show that, among the disadvantaged groups the Fund apparently aims to engage, the homeless and those affected by housing exclusion make up a marginal fraction of those receiving aid. In 20 EU Member States people categorised as homeless make up less than 1% of those who benefitted, with Portugal, Romania, Cyprus, and Malta including no homeless people whatsoever.
