The Salvation Army sends joint letter calling for EU level action on homelessness
by Catherine MALLET
In a recent letter to The European Commission, The Salvation Army, EU Affairs Office, together with Eurodiaconia and FEANTSA welcomed recent commitments made to addressing homelessness in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda as well as the newly adopted Pillar of Social Rights. The letter stresses the opportunity to address homelessness in the post 2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) which is essentially the EU’s long term spending plan and provides a framework for financial programming and budgetary discipline.
