Parliamentary questions
7 June 2017
E-003757-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Charles Tannock (ECR)

 Subject:  Increasing levels of homelessness in Europe
 Answer(s) 

A report published in March this year by the European housing body FEANTSA (the European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless), entitled ‘The Second Overview of Housing Exclusion in Europe 2017’, states that homelessness in Europe is at crisis point and increasing in every Member State except Finland. The demographic of the homeless population is also changing and now includes more young people, migrants, Roma and other disadvantaged minorities, as well as women and families. My constituency of London is singled out as a city where the housing system is particularly under strain.

What steps is the Commission taking to provide accurate information on the number of people affected by homelessness in the EU?

What proportions of the European Social Fund and the European Regional Development Fund are being directed specifically towards combating homelessness?

Which Member States have applied for co-financing from the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived, and which have been successful?
