Welcome back to the FEANTSA Flash! 

This month was action-packed, no more so than in the European Parliament, where three different reports that call for action on homelessness and housing were adopted. One of these was Kim van Sparrentak’s ambitious report on decent and affordable housing, the adoption of which marks an important step forward in addressing the housing crisis at the European level.  

Meanwhile, as vaccine rollouts began across Europe, COVID-19 continues to pose a severe threat to those experiencing homelessness. Some local authorities and governments have recognised this and made homeless people a priority group in their vaccine strategy, while others are slow to do so. Read on to find out more. 

As always, if you have a tip for the Flash please feel free to get in touch!
