Today, the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) launches a website to help social service providers get better loans through the EU Investment Plan and the European Investment Bank. The new website -www.socialinvestment.eu- provides a simple, yet detailed overview of the Plan itself, the different options available, tips and success stories. It also provides useful information for investors and public authorities willing to invest in the social services sector.
