The report is about the services provided to homeless people by the Danish Ministry of Children, Gender Equality, Integration and Social Affairs (the Ministry of Social Affairs), the Danish Ministry of Housing, Urban and Rural Affairs (the Ministry of Housing) and the Danish local authorities.
The purpose of the report is to examine whether the local authorities provide a coordinated and coherent package of support to homeless people, and whether the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Housing have supported the local authorities in their efforts to do so. The report answers the following questions:
- Are the local authorities providing an adequately coordinated and coherent package of support to homeless people?
- Has the Ministry of Social Affairs supported the local authorities’ efforts directed towards homeless people in a satisfactory manner?
- Has the Ministry of Housing supported the local authorities adequately in their efforts to secure appropriate accommodation for homeless people?
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in September 2013.
