EASPD Investment Update: the latest opportunities for social investment in your country

For several years now, the European Association of Service providers for People with Disabilities (EASPD) has been very active in improving access to finance for the social services sector through different European financial instruments.

As part of a new service for its members, EASPD will monitor and provide regular updates on strategic social investments made across Europe. These investments will be facilitated through European programmes, the European Investment Bank (EIB) & the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB). 

The objective is to inform the sector of possible new opportunities across Europe as well as to provide inspiration on the role these instruments could have to improve access to finance for social care and support providers.

Below you can find a list of recent agreements that have supported investment into the social sector:
