  • EU Mobile Citizens’ Access to Rights

Led by the European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless (FEANTSA), this project aims to create a sense of urgency at the European political level on the issue of homelessness among mobile EU citizens, ensuring legal certainty with regard to homeless EU mobile citizens’ access to rights and empowering destitute mobile EU citizens to claim their rights. Specific attention is paid to countries such as Belgium, Germany and the UK which are among the countries where the issue is the most acute.

Project partners rely on a multi-level strategy, including advocacy actions and training/awareness-raising among homelessness services and public authorities which are in direct contact with mobile EU citizens. Through these activities, the project aims, amongst others, to provide EU institutions with concrete and enforceable proposals for a revision of the existing framework, to provide professionals with the necessary knowledge on how to support destitute mobile EU citizens, and to provide EU mobile citizens themselves with tools to prevent destitution and enhance social inclusion.
