Support and Housing in Europe - Tackling social exclusion in the European Union

Bill Edgar, Joe Doherty and Amy Mina-Coull 2000

This comprehensive study explores the development of designated ‘supported accommodation’ and other social support mechanisms for vulnerable people in European Union countries over the last two decades. The book :

  • considers the principles underlying the emergence of supported housing and describes the policy context of care services in the EU;
  • assesses the need for social support to enable the successful reintegration of homeless people into mainstream housing;
  • explores the problems and issues involved in the provision of supported housing.
