Aim of the Conference

The EU Investment Plan has currently had very little impact on social sector organisations, with under 4% of the European Fund for Strategic Investments going to Social Infrastructure and under 1% to Social Services. At a time of growing demand for community-based care and support services, the EU Investment Plan could help the social sector in accessing much-needed loans to build, innovate and provide better services.  It is for this reason that EASPD and EPC have come together to organise an event aimed at bringing together the social sector(s) and investors to assess  how to unlock investment into quality social care and support for all.
