Housing First and PIEs in Finland

Finland is often cited as the country that has shown that Housing First can work just as well in the context of Europe’s more extensive welfare state values, and the EU social charter.   In their report, A Home of Your Own, one of the leading exponents of this work in Finland, Y Foundation, describe in some detail the development of their services. 

We also have here the beginnings of a discussion with Y Foundation on the underlying characteristics of successful supported housing programmes. WE hope to bring more on their work after the CEO's visit to England, and presentation at a Westminster Policy Forum,  in February 2018
