Visit to Holland to meet pioneering models of homelessness care

25 April, 2018

A delegation of three people of Suara Cooperativa travelled to Holland from 17th to 20th April to visit different resources and services related to support the access to housing. During the first days of the visit the participants found out about different projects of homelessness care, pioneering because of its structural, architectonic and social transformation models.

Between these projects, focused on the accompaniment, the support and the transition of people in risk of residential exclusion, the delegation of Suara Cooperativa met some pioneering initiatives of apartments for young people built with containers and the program Housing First Discus, as well as new tendencies in modular construction, transformation of disused buildings, apartments and services of transition and cohousing between students and elderly people. 

The last two days of the visit Suara Cooperativa participated in the round table of the REX workshop International, which brings together the main representatives of the most important Housing Associations in Europe, including Sweden, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Denmark and Scotland.
