Researchers representing many EU countries met at University of York on 21 September to discuss 'Access to Housing for Homeless People in Europe'. The event was organised by Centre for Housing Policy on behalf of the European Observatory on Homelessness , a body created by FEANTSA, the European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless.
A number of CHP researchers took part in the conference, with Nicholas Pleace co-presenting the plenary session on Social Housing Allocation and Homelessness. Other CHP papers were as follows:
Joanne Bretherton (with Caroline Hunter and Sarah Johnsen): “You Can Judge them on how they Look….”: Homelessness Officers, Medical Evidence and Decision-Making
Anwen Jones: Peer Landlords and ‘Supportive’ Shared Housing
A full programme with papers for download can be found on the FEANTSA website
