The Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD)
Breaking the vicious circle of poverty and deprivation
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.
