    Goals / Remit

    The Salvation Army provides social services, poverty relief, civic involvement in social inclusion activities, refugee/migration support, anti-human trafficking services and support for Roma populations in 22 of the 27 Member States. It is present also in many of the bordering countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The Salvation Army EU Affairs Office represents the Salvation Army networks and national networks at EU level. The goal of the EU Affairs office is to provide an EU level platform for the Salvation Army to relate to the EU and European issues, to understand more about the workings of the EU, and to enable the Army to engage in advocacy, representing the organization as well as the people we serve. The EU Affairs Office is also a platform whereby we can share expertise, knowledge and experience and develop wider partnerships.

    Main EU files targeted

    The EU Affairs office is monitoring a variety of policy items related to our action for poverty relief and social justice. More in details, our office follows EU developments in the area of Roma inclusion, with a particular look at the implementation of the National Roma Integration Strategies; EU policy solutions on refugees and migrants; the EU strategy and Directive on anti-human trafficking. More broadly, we follow the European Semester and its social aspects, the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights and EU Actions for Sustainable Development Goals. We also monitor and signal to the offices of our organisation in EU member states relevant EU funding and call for proposals.
