To pull something out of the bag : A Study of Social Services Collaboration with Housing Companies (English)
Abstract [en]

There are people who for various reasons cannot provide housing for themselves and therefore

are at risk of being excluded from the regular housing market. Social services are in

various ways trying to assist these people in order to be able to get housing. For this purpose,

Social services collaborate with various housing companies and there are a variety of actions

that constitutes the so-called secondary housing market.

The purpose of this paper is to study Social services collaboration with housing companies on

the secondary housing market in a municipality. From this purpose, the following questions

were composed:


What factors are significant for housing companies’ ability to provide housing to

Social services?


How does the cooperation with housing companies effect Social services action in

individual cases?


With what measures does Social services, within the collaboration, increase their

chances of obtaining the housing they need to fulfill its obligations?

The study was conducted through interviews with two respondents from Social services in

one municipality and respondents from three housing companies that Social services in the

municipality cooperates with. The housing companies role in the collaboration is mainly due

to corporate governance and financial reasons, but the factors that are important for Social

service chances to obtain a housing solution through the collaboration are the collaborative

environment (Social services expand their resources or fold down) and the market conditions

(demand and supply of housing on the ordinary housing market). In the individual case the

action taken may be influenced by the collaboration depending on what category of client the

action refers to. Social services increase their ability to obtain housing by using money or

favors depending on what the housing companies call for.
