Eurodiaconia supports its members regarding external & EU funding through different ways. We monitor the publication of calls for proposals by the European Commission and other European entities that provide funding for diaconal organisations (e.g. European foundations). Information about funding opportunities is shared with the membership and Eurodiaconia can support the application process or play and active role as a project partner. We also offer capacity-building events (workshops, webinars etc.) and share any relevant information about how diaconal organisations can access additional funding to offer innovative services or diversify their funding. In addition, Eurodiaconia is also an active advocate for sustainable and accessible EU funding and represents the voice of its members in Brussels to share their first-hand concerns and experiences with political decision-makers.
