The chapter begins with an analysis of the discourses of homelessness that forms the background to a description of the policies towards homeless people in Sweden and Britain. This is followed by an analysis of the impact of different models of supported housing used in the two countries using the framework described earlier in the book. Finally some conclusions are drawn on the impact of supported housing on the well-being of the homeless residents.
