Finland sets new benchmark

April 19 2017
Finland is the only country in Europe where homelessness has declined

A report from EU housing organisation Feantsa has shown that every European country is suffering from a homelessness crisis - except Finland.

Since 2008 Finland has run a 'Housing First' model that focuses on simply finding permanent homes for people as soon as they become homeless. This differs to many other countries, including the UK, which direct people to various services that are not always effective at helping everyone.

Juha Kaakinen of Finnish low-cost housing provider Y-Foundation told the Guardian: "Finland is the only country in Europe where the number of homeless people has declined in recent years."
