This brochure describes the EU’s effort to help some of its most vulnerable citizens by providing non-financial assistance. It presents statistics that indicate the current level of poverty in Europe, and describes what FEAD is; why it’s needed; whom it’s for; and how it works. The publication also gives true-life examples of how FEAD is helping people in Europe, and how assistance is administered by partners in several EU countries. An annex provides details for each country: budget, how the funds are being used, and the name and contact information of the managing authority.
This publication will be available in all EU official languages.
