Target groups

The following persons taking part in the work of the multidisciplinary cooperation network and joint development are closely involved in the project:

  • Experts through experience who have experienced homelessness or the threat of homelessness
  • Organisational actors and employees working for municipalities other than those involved in the project

Project target groups also include other municipalities and municipal actors, as well as organisations in the sector that benefit from the operating models developed in the project and that can use them in their own activities. Ministries and expert organisations (at national level) and European actors (at international level).

Homelessness can be reduced by taking action

The measures set out in the project help to reduce homelessness. The measures have an indirect impact on the following target groups:

  • homeless people suffering from deprivation and facing the threat of recurring homelessness
  • persons that face the threat of homelessness or that have recently become homeless.

They include

  • customers with intoxicant and mental health problems, intoxicant and mental health rehabilitees, as well as released prisoners
  • homeless youngsters or youngsters facing the threat of homelessness
  • youngsters in child welfare aftercare
  • adults facing difficult problems in housing, livelihood and rental payments
  • homeless immigrants, immigrants facing the threat of homelessness and asylum seekers granted a residence permit.

It should be noted that in reality these groups overlap and one individual may be affected by several problems contributing to deprivation.
