Brussels: Getting better loans through the EU Investment Plan
Are you a Social Service provider? Do you have investment needs? Are you struggling to get a decent loan?. Then the EU Investment Plan may just be the answer for you. Launched in 2015, the EU Investment Plan aims to help SMEs and other organisation access loans at a better rate. In short, the Plan uses European money as a guarantee for private investors. This in turn will make investors more willing to provide you with a loan.

Date: 27th November, 09j30 - 17h30
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Venue: To be confirmed
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.
