TOPHOUSE, a project which aims to develop and provide specialist tools that can be used to improve the effectiveness, fairness and transparency of assessing and allocating social housing needs, is looking for Good Practices in the field of social housing.
The project, which is co-financed by Erasmus+, would like to receive information on Good practices that improve the access to affordable housing schemes for persons with disabilities, homeless people and the elderly.
What are they looking for?
TOPHOUSE is looking for Good Practices in:
- Assessment of housing needs of persons with disabilities;
- Inclusive allocation models of social housing for persons with disabilities;
- Support and assistance models in community living and community-based rehabilitation, that include the access to affordable and accessible housing;
- Cooperation models with stakeholders, community developers or local social planners that improve allocation, affordability and accessibility of social housing for persons with disabilities;
- Projects or programmes initiated by civil society, governments, the business sector, etc.
The Good Practice should be in line with the UN CRPD and therefore according to human rights standards. They should reflect person-centred approaches and allow for the highest level of user involvement in the design, implementation and evaluation process (co-production).
By submitting your proposal, you will become part of a large European network of decision- and policymakers and will be able to shape the future of social housing.
Alongside this TOPHOUSE can provide you with access to the knowledge generated by the project and international experts on person-centred approaches in housing and support (H&S) and benefit from the different activities, workshops and learning opportunities. Selected promising practices will be included in the TOPHOUSE report which will be disseminated across Europe.
To submit your good practice:
1.Complete the attached nomination form
2.Please send the completed form to by 30th March 2018
