Following the success of last year’s inaugural Awards, where three worthy winners were chosen for their innovative use of the European Social Fund to develop projects which made a big difference to homeless people’s lives, this year will recognise innovative projects which have been funded by the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD).
FEANTSA hopes that the Awards will be an opportunity to showcase how the FEAD is being used to fight homelessness across Europe and to provide inspiration for other worthy projects seeking financial assistance from this fund. The awards are part of FEANTSA's Be Fair Europe - Stand up for Homeless People campaign, an aim of which is to promote the investment of EU funds in ending homelessness.
Gold, silver and bronze awards will be given out in Brussels on the evening of 6 November, following the meeting of the FEAD Network. The gold winner will have a short video made about them and all three winners will be invited to present their projects at the 2019 FEANTSA Policy Conference, as well as having their work included in a best practice handbook (see last year's).
