solidaritySince its launch in September 2016, Eurodiaconia and several of its members are taking part in the FEAD Network Meetings in Brussels. The FEAD network is an open community for people providing assistance to the most deprived in Europe. This includes the EU institutions, organisations interested in or delivering FEAD-funded activities and national Managing Authorities. The network provides a space for good practice to be shared and encourages new ideas for how to provide non-financial assistance to the most deprived persons in the EU. Eurodiaconia has been invited to present its members’ work on different occasions – such as in October 2016 when Eurodiaconia presented successful projects of the Church of Sweden (Digniti Omnia – A worthier life for all) and Kirkens Koshær (Kompasset – The Compass) funded through the FEAD.

Organisations working to deliver FEAD initiatives take part in face-to-face network meetings in Brussels to stimulate discussion and raise awareness of FEAD-related topics. The FEAD Network also virtually interacts to share tools and resources to assist with delivery of the Fund. Through the virtual community, the FEAD Network is building a bank of knowledge and good practices to allow those who work to deliver FEAD’s national programmes to continually improve.
