On 27-28 October 2016, over 20 participants from Eurodiaconia member organizations and partner organizations gathered to discuss issues related to financing social services as experienced by the not-for-profit sector. The conference was co-organized by Eurodiaconia, the Helsinki Deaconess Institute (Finland) and Diakonie Germany, who hosted the event at its headquarters in Berlin.

The discussion focused on different national frameworks for financing social services, explored new initiatives at EU and national levels which could boost social services provided under a not-for-profit basis and looked at partnership opportunities with other stakeholders.
