Invitation to Work Integrating Social Enterprises Event, 18-19 May

30 April 2015

We are pleased to invite you to participate in an event on Work Integrating Social Enterprises. It will take place from the 18-19 May in our offices in Brussels, Belgium, rue Joseph II 166.

The aim of the event is to facilitate networking and mutual learning among people involved in WISE from the members of the organising partners: Eurodiaconia, the European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD), and the European Network of Social Integration Enterprises (ENSIE). It also aims to promote the work of WISE among decision makers in Brussels, including showing that diaconal organisations that have been running for many years are also active in this sector. It seeks to build the capacity of WISE organisations in a few key areas and inform them what the EU is doing that is relevant for them and to develop input for future advocacy work on the topic.

Please find the programme and the online registration form here.

IF YOU ARE NOT a service provider and wish to attend the second day of this event only, which is open to the public, please click here.

First Meeting for Members on Hospitals and Health Care

27 April 2014

Eurodiaconia is pleased to invite you to the first meeting for members on Hospitals and Health Care, due to take place on 9-10 September 2015 in Zollikerberg - Zürich, Switzerland.
During discussions at the 2014 AGM a number of members suggested that a meeting for members concerned with providing health care services, including hospitals, would be beneficial and would provide an opportunity to discuss general and specifically diaconal concerns in this area of work.
The meeting will be hosted by Diakoniewerk Neumünster, a large hospital in the area of Zurich, Switzerland
The meeting will be based on discussion, best practices sharing, input from members and some input from staff. There will be the possibility to visit Diakoniewerk Neumünster and see how this hospital serves the local and wider community.
We are aware that some members run hospitals, others health centres for undocumented migrants, nursing stations etc. We will as much as possible try to meet the needs of all health care service providers by splitting up into smaller groups during the meeting based on participants interests, needs and experience.

Please find the draft programme and the online registration form here.

Discover the universe of Social Enterprises!

20 April 2015

Eurodiaconia, EASPD and ENSIE are pleased to invite you to attend our Conference on Work Integrating Social Enterprises (WISE), taking place on the 19th of May from 9.30 to 16.30 in rue Joseph II 166, in Brussels (Belgium).

The aim of this event is to introduce to a wide audience the important role played by WISE to incorporate socially excluded people, as well as people with mental or physical disabilities, into society, through adapted work.
Beyond the necessary focus on assistance and care, WISE also offer social recognition to people who are highly prone to marginalisation or stereotyping due to their supposed lack of capabilities. Work Integrating Social Enterprises prove in fact the opposite.
Through panel discussions and stands showcasing member organisations' flagship initiatives in this area, you shall discover a wide range of Work Integration Social Enterprises operating in Europe, their legal and economic framework, the work they do, how they do it and their numerous societal outcomes.

Please fin the programme and the online registration form here.

AGM 2015 in Barcelona: "Filling gaps, bringing hope: Diaconia in a changing Europe"

10 February 2015

Since the social and economic crisis began in 2008, we have been faced with a galloping escalation in the divisions among European countries and within each society. This is evidenced by the increase of poverty and social marginalization all over Europe, which jeopardises social inclusion and peoples’ legitimate aspirations for recognition, equal opportunities and social justice.

Along with the usual governance business of our network, this year’s Annual General Meeting “Filling gaps, bringing hope: Diaconia in a changing Europe” shall highlight some of the members’ projects that are responding to the challenge of adapting Diaconia to a changing Europe. Special emphasis will be given to the Spanish social and economic situation, still highly affected by the crisis.
