Homelessness in Finland has been reduced by more than half over the last 25 years, with a significant decline in those who have been homeless for a long time.

This report aims to provide some insights into how this has been achieved through the work of social enterprise the Y-Foundation, winner of the World Habitat Awards in 2014.  It also includes observations and lessons from a BSHF peer exchange to the Y-Foundation, held in October 2015.
