Community Living for Europe: Structural Funds Watch (CLE:SFW) is an independent initiative that tracks how effectively the clear commitment of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) to support community living of children, persons with disabilities and older persons is being implemented. The initiative is guided by a Steering Committee comprised of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), advocating for implementation of the ESIF regulations.
The Initiative has published two reports so far:
“Inclusion for all: achievements and challenges in using EU funds to support community living”, launched in November 2018 at the European Parliament
“Opening up Communities, Closing down Institutions: Harnessing the European Structural and Investment Funds” launched in November 2017 at the European Parliament.
We need your help! Tell us how the ESIF regulations are being implemented in your country and in what way EU funding is used for the transition to community living and development of community-based services >>> INPUT NOW.
