European Union Affairs Office
The EU Affairs Office monitors EU policy developments that are relevant for the Europe zone and the issues that particularly affect our social work. Key issues that we monitor include human trafficking, Roma inclusion, refugees and migration, homelessness as well as women and children’s issues. All of these issues have their roots in wider questions of poverty and social injustice and are often interrelated and complex, however we hope to bring to the debate a holistic and integrated approach, based on our expertise gained from over 150 years of serving the most vulnerable and marginalised.
