This working group (WG) is committed to combat homelessness in cities, by having an integrated approach on prevention and active inclusion of homeless population. The main focus of the cities is to strengthen the local and national strategies, and to implement effective policies, in order to reduce the share of population at-risk or in homelessness situation.

The main objectives of 2018 are:

  •  to develop strategies for inclusion of homeless people into the labour market, in the context of housing first and beyond;
  •  to identify the tools and practices used by cities to prevent evictions, in cooperation with WG housing.
