This comparative report looks at the patterns of homelessness service provision across Europe and explores the potential for developing a pan-European typology of homelessness services. This report examines variations between countries and differences between urban and rural areas. Emergency shelters, food distribution and daycentres, alongside services using a ‘housing ready’ approach, are the most common homelessness services in Europe. However, housing-led and Housing First services and homelessness prevention are widespread, changing the ways in which homelessness is being responded to in Europe. This report is the eighth in a series produced by the European Observatory on Homelessness exploring pan-European issues through a questionnaire-based approach, using a group of national experts.
