Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This comparative report is the eleventh in a series of studies led by the European Observatory on Homelessness. This research looks at how municipal, regional, and national governments provide financial support to preventing and ending homelessness, highlighting both challenges and good practice. The report considers current funding systems in relation to the goals of the Lisbon Declaration to end homelessness by 2030 and argues that funding systems are often not well synchronised with recent thinking about the best strategies and service models to prevent and reduce homelessness.
