EU Investment Plan: Investing in Social Care and Support





Date: 27th November, 09j30 - 17h30

Location: Brussels, Belgium

Conference partners: EASPD and the European Policy Centre



Aim of the Conference



The EU Investment Plan has currently had very little impact on social sector organisations, with under 4% of the European Fund for Strategic Investments going to Social Infrastructure and under 1% to Social Services. At a time of growing demand for community-based care and support services, the EU Investment Plan could help the social sector in accessing much-needed loans to build, innovate and provide better services.  It is for this reason that EASPD and EPC have come together to organise an event aimed at bringing together the social sector(s) and investors to assess  how to unlock investment into quality social care and support for all.



Confirmed Speakers





  • Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Mobility




  • James Crowe, President of the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities




  • Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Policy Centre and ex-President of the European Council
