Housing First has become a popular intervention to support people experiencing homelessness and in recent years a huge focus has been placed on shifting services from the staircase model to housing led or housing first systems. With many services having undergone this transition what are the key challenges? What have we learned? And what does this mean for services interested in the shift? The workshop will present the mind shift which has undergone in Poland, Spain & Slovakia in how Housing First has been implemented.
