Anti Poverty Network
 
The European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) is the largest European network of national, regional and local networks, involving anti-poverty NGOs and grassroot groups as well as European Organisations, active in the fight against poverty and social exclusion. It was established in 1990. ˧

At present, EAPN is a network of 31 national networks of voluntary organisations and grassroots groups and 18 European organisations. See our members‘ page. ˧

The membership of EAPN is involved in a variety of activities aimed at combating poverty and social exclusion including, education and training activities, service provision and activities aimed at the participation and empowerment of people experiencing poverty and social exclusion. ˧

Together the membership of EAPN aims to put the fight against poverty high on the agenda of the EU and to ensure cooperation at EU level aimed at the eradication of poverty and social exclusion. ˧

Our work is carried out by our members, split into specific statutory entities and task forces. These groups feed into our European level work their national perspectives, individual expertise or the specific focus of the European organisation they are affiliated to. See here structures of EAPN. ˧

EAPN has consultative status with the Council of Europe, and is a founding member of the Social Platform (Platform of European Social NGOs) ˧
