Annual Conference 2014 - Norway

A home is a cornerstone in the lives of most people. The right to housing is one of the most basic human rights ensuring human dignity. The successful integration of housing and social services enables people with support needs to live independently and be included in society. It is thus one of the most important challenges and responsibilities of service providers and authorities across Europe. This conference will focus on one of the most pressing issues in European politics.

 

On 9th and 10th October 2014, The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) together with the Nordic Centre for Welfare and Social Issues (NVC), the Norwegian SOR Foundation and the partners of PUSH Europe: FEANTSA, CECODHAS and MHE organised an international conference on the development of homes and housing services for persons with disabilities, persons with mental health problems, homeless people and people in need of housing support. The conference took place in Oslo with the financial support of the European Commission, Husbanken & Triodos Bank.

The conference took stock of current models of good practice and experiences, and discussed future challenges and strategies to make “A Home for All” a reality in municipalities and local communities in Europe. Special attention was given to the cross-sectorial co-operation between housing and support service providers for people with support needs.
 

The conference provided numerous opportunities for all participants to network with their colleagues across Europe and to share experiences, especially during the conference workshops and the networking event.
